                     WASHINGTON -- US and European
                     negotiators on Thursday ended a
                     two-day meeting over data privacy
                     regulations without resolving key issues
                     that continue to stymie progress. 

                     Both sides said they had worked through
                     some differences, but did not discount
                     the chance of a trade war if they failed
                     to reach agreement. 

                     "There is a risk [of a trade war]," said
                     John Mogg, the European Union's
                     negotiator, at a joint press conference at
                     the US Commerce Department.
