Libya Reverts to the Stone Age
Several bloggers are all over the this story [Six innocent people sentenced to death.] It concerns five foreign nurses and a doctor who went to Libya in 1999 to help look after sick children. Many of the children became infected with HIV and developed AIDS. Genetic testing has shown that the virus was present before the team of nurses and doctors arrived at the hospital but, in spite of the scientific evidence, the Tripoli Six have been convicted of spreading the disease and sentenced to death.
There has been rejoicing in the street in Libya as citizens demonstrate their support for an ignorant court.
