A Lithuanian court reopened the trial of a suspected Nazi war criminal. But the proceedings were stopped when Aleksandras Lileikis, who was watching via video from a sick bed, had to go to a hospital after his blood pressure rose. The 93- year-old Lileikis is accused of handing at least 75 Jews over to Nazi death squads while serving with the Nazi-sponsored Lithuanian security police.
