Libyan HIV-infected children to get compensation

Eastern European countries are processing a financial deal to compensate the families of 400 Libyan children infected with the AIDS virus, the head of the families' victims association said Saturday. Five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor were sentenced to death in the case, causing international outcry, and Libyan officials have said a settlement could pave the way for the medics' release. "The final settlement is pending executive steps being taken, including transferring the money to the Benghazi International Fund," Idriss Lagha, the head of the Association for the Families of HIV-Infected Children, told The Associated Press.
