World Leaders React to Libyan Court Decision
World Leaders have expressed their shock and disappointment on hearing the news about a Libyan court's decision to re-impose the death sentences on five Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian doctor for supposedly deliberately infecting hundreds of children with HIV.

George Bush has expressed his "disappointment" to Georgi Parvanov, the Bulgarian President. He added that the Bulgaria's attempts to strive for the release of the five nurses would be fully supported by him.

The US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice said that the medical workers have to be freed and allowed to go home as soon as possible, as they are already being in prison since 1999.

Johannes Laitenberger, a spokesman for the European Union concluded that the EU would decide what steps to take against Libya after launching a legal appeal.
