Los Angeles Times Reports On Case Of Libyan Children Infected With HIV

The Los Angeles Times examines the case of more than 400 Libyan youth who were infected with HIV in a Benghazi hospital between 1997 and 1998, some say deliberately. “Today, with Kadafi’s regime ousted from the east, at least for now, there is hope that some kind of truth may finally emerge, even as freedom from Kadafi has brought a new peril: a shortage of crucial medications because of interrupted shipments from Europe,” the newspaper writes (5/25).
