Belgrade, Serbia Horrific confession: A former Kosovar rebel said he cut out the heart of a live Serbian prisoner during the 1998–99 Kosovo conflict. “As soon as I started cutting, he began screaming not to kill him, and then he lost consciousness,” the unidentified ethnic Albanian said in an interview broadcast on Serbian television. A day earlier, prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic said he had a witness who would testify about the Kosovo Liberation Army murdering Serbs to sell their organs on the black market; such allegations first surfaced in a 2008 book by former war crimes prosecutor Carla Del Ponte. A Council of Europe report later alleged that Hashim Thaci, Kosovo’s current prime minister and a former KLA commander, was involved in the trafficking.
