A Lithuanian court called a five-day recess in a Nazi-era war crimes trial. Aleksandras Lileikis, 93, watched the trial last week from his sick bed via a video link, but the court adjourned when doctors said he was suffering from high blood pressure. Lileikis is accused of handing over at least 75 Jews to Nazi death squads while he served with the Nazi-sponsored Lithuanian security police.
