Trial of War Crimes Suspect Postponed

From Times Wire Reports

The trial of Lithuanian war crimes suspect Aleksandras Lileikis was postponed to today after he failed to show up. Lileikis, 91, is accused of turning over Lithuanian Jews to the Nazis while he was head of the secret police in Vilnius, the capital, during World War II. He has been hospitalized since last week, his lawyers said. Lileikis returned to Lithuania in 1995 as the U.S. moved to revoke his citizenship, but he was not charged until this year.
