    ZAGREB (AFP) - A Christmas card sent from Zagreb has taken 10 years to reach its destination in Sesvete 10 kilometers (six miles) from the capital, just in time for Christmas 2003, the local press reported.

    "We wish you a Merry Christmas and a lot of luck and health in 1994. May there be peace in the region!" said the card, sent in December 1993, when wars were still raging in the territory of the former Yugoslavia.

    The surprise of the Pervan family was all the greater as their friend, identified as Amir, died a few years ago.

    Kata Pervan told the newspaper that after receiving the card she thought at first it was a bad joke.

    It was only later when she looked more carefully that she noticed the stamp dating from December 21, 1993.

    The Croatian Post did not explain the late delivery.

    At least their mailpersons had a GREAT excuse for the slow service.............WAR!
