Kosovo organ-trafficking claims re-emerge

The government of Kosovo has dismissed as "defamatory" claims that Prime Minister Hashim Thaci once led an organised crime network whose activities included trafficking in human organs taken from murdered prisoners.

The allegations - in a report for the Council of Europe - were first investigated by Newsnight 18 months ago, as Mark Urban reports.

Broadcast on Wednesday 15 December 2010.
