Underreported Update: Libya 6

Thursday, July 12, 2007

Yesterday, the Libyan Supreme Court upheld the death sentence against the so-called Libya 6, the 5 Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor accused of deliberately infecting over 400 children with HIV in Libya. We've been following their case on Underreported for awhile, and today journalist Declan Butler explains yesterday's developments. Butler is a senior reporter with Nature who runs a blog about the case.
