The son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi admitted in an interview with Al-Jazeera TV that the Bulgarian medics jailed on charges of infecting children with HIV-Aids were tortured during captivity, the pan-Arab network said on its Web site Thursday. The five Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian doctor were released last month and have maintained that their confessions were extracted through torture. "Yes, they (the medics) were tortured by electricity and they were threatened that their family members would be targeted. But a lot of what the Palestinian doctor has claimed are merely lies," Seif al-Islam Gadhafi was quoted as saying in the Al-Jazeera interview initially broadcast Wednesday.
