Libya Frees Condemned Medical Workers
Six foreign medical workers sentenced to death in Libya are free thanks to a deal with the European Union. The five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor flew out of Libya to Bulgaria aboard a French jetliner accompanied by the wife of French President Nicholas Sarkozy.
The medical workers were convicted of intentionally infecting hundreds of Libyan children with HIV. They have maintained their innocence.
