Travesty of Justice in Libya

I hadn't heard about this story before last night: the Libyan government has accused 6 hospital workers, all foreign nationals (1 Palestinian, 5 Bulgarians) of intentionally infecting hundreds of children with HIV.

The international community is protesting, since it's obvious that Libya is using the workers as patsies to cover up poor hospital practices. But so far efforts have been futile. The workers have been imprisoned, tortured and sentenced to death. And they are running out of options.
