The death sentence of five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor accused of infecting hundreds of Libyan children with HIV has been commuted to life in prison, Libya's foreign minister said Tuesday. Foreign Minister Abdel-Rahman Shalqam said Libya's Supreme Judiciary Council had commuted the death sentences to life in prison. "Issuing this decision automatically closes the legal case against them," Shalqam told The Associated Press.
