American prosecutor for the EU Special Investigative Task Force Clint Williamson holds up ten fingers as he refers to the number of possible victims during a media conference at EU headquarters in Brussels on Tuesday, July 29, 2014. Williamson says there are "compelling indications" that up to 10 captives were killed to have their organs harvested for illegal trafficking during the 1998-99 Kosovo war. The EU probe followed a 2011 Council of Europe report alleging that the rebel Kosovo Liberation Army ran detention camps on Albania's border during Kosovo's war for independence from Serbia. It alleged that civilian captives were killed there and their organs sold as part of an illegal trade linked to senior KLA commanders. (AP Photo/Virginia Mayo)BRUSSELS (AP) — A special European Union prosecutor says there are "compelling indications" that up to ten captives were killed to have their organs harvested for illegal trafficking during the 1998-99 Kosovo war.

Shelly Sterling is congratulated outside a Los Angeles courthouse on July 28, 2014 after a judge gives the go-ahead for the sale of the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve BallmerA US judge gave the go-ahead for the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer, ruling that embattled owner Donald Sterling could not block the move. The ruling by California Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas on Monday came after a three-week trial pitting the 80-year-old Sterling -- barred from the National Basketball Association for life for making racist remarks -- against his estranged wife Shelly, who made the deal with Ballmer. Levanas said the sale could go forward immediately, even if Donald Sterling -- who had challenged his wife's authority to sell the NBA franchise -- appeals. Shelly Sterling negotiated the sale on behalf of the family trust, after Donald Sterling's position as co-trustee was terminated when two medical experts declared the billionaire real estate mogul mentally incompetent to handle trust affairs.
