Apart from family and friends, prominent Serbian personalities were also among the mourners, including Patriarch Irinej, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, Director of the Office for... Еще Kosovo and Metohija Marko Djuric and the head of the Royal Family of Serbia Aleksandar I Karadjordjevic. Ivanovic, 64, was shot at least five times by unknown assailants in a drive-by shooting, and died later in hospital. The shooters escaped and have not been caught.
