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.
