A Serbian prosecutor says a witness has testified "in detail" about how ethnic Albanian rebels allegedly harvested organs for trafficking from Serbs taken captive during the war in Kosovo. Albania and Kosovo have previously denied such allegations.

The alleged witness – a former Kosovo Albanian rebel – claims to have participated in surgery involving harvesting a heart from a Serb captive in northern Albania and taking it to the airport near the Albanian capital, Tirana. The European Union is investigating claims of organ harvesting.
