Libyan court sentences seven foreign health workers to death
SOFIA (AFP) - A Libyan court sentenced to death six Bulgarian health workers and a Palestinian doctor convicted of spreading AIDS (news - web sites) in a children's hospital.



The court at Benghazi, in northern Libya, said the seven foreigners would be executed by a firing squad.


They were found guilty of infecting some 400 children, of whom 43 have since died, at a hospital in Benghazi with the HIV virus (news - web sites) that causes AIDS by injecting them with tainted blood products.

---snip---

Nine Libyan doctors who were accused of negligence in the case were pronounced not guilty by the court where angry relatives of the infected children protested Thursday, holding banners reading "Thanks for the AIDS."
