Ukrainian leader starts anti-corruption campaign
KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukraine will contest the disputed privatization of some 3,000 former state enterprises that were turned over "to private but dishonest hands," Ukraine's new prime minister said Wednesday.

Three Germans get rabies from organ transplants
FRANKFURT, Germany -- Three hospital patients in Germany appear to have been infected with rabies through organ transplants and are in critical condition, a medical foundation said Wednesday. Three others who received transplants from the same donor, a woman who died of a heart attack late last year, are doing fine, the German Foundation for Organ Transplants said. The donor showed no rabies symptoms at the time of her death, although a recent examination of her brain showed typical signs of the disease, the group said.
