HIV Infected Libyan Children, Jetted To France For Treatment
426 Libyan children who were infected with the AIDS virus are taken to France for treatment.

A team of Five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor caused this tragedy, which shook the entire world.

They were found guilty of transfusing HIV contaminated blood to these children.

The event occurred in Benghazi hospital, Libya.

The Libyan Supreme Court found the accused guilty and condemned them to death. But now it has ordered a new trial for the six accused.

Among the 426 Libyan children 51 of them had already died due to disease. To help the surviving children the government had taken the initiative to provide them with an opportunity to be treated in France.

This would give them a chance to live their dreams. The officials who are responsible for these children have divided them into groups.

The first 30 children who are critical would be jetted to France for treatment. But on the other hand the Bulgarian government is denying that the nurses are responsible for such an event.

At the moment the best approach is not to blame each other but to find a solution for the current situation.
