The International Herald Tribune reports that a man who launched a Facebook group critical of Prime Minister Ivo Sanader has been detained and questioned by police. Months ago Niksa Klecak, 22, set up an anti-Sanader group on Facebook. The name of the group was, "I bet I can find 5,000 people who dislike Sanader." Klecak's group has grown to 6,200 members since Friday — exceeding his original goal of 5,000.
Another Facebook group, called "Search my flat, you Gestapo gang, Croatia is not a police state," surfaced over the weekend and already has about 2,600 members. By contrast, a group called "I bet I can find 7,000 people who LIKE Sanader" has just 19 members so far.
Which group Sanader's mom joined has not been reported.
