Expat medics endure Libya siege

Hospital staff in Nalut had the chance to leave but chose to stay, treating both civilians and soldiers.

    Communities in the western Nafusa mountain range of Libya are under siege by Muammar Gaddafi's forces.

    The town of Nalut was reportedly bombarded with Grad rockets on Thursday.

    A team of medical professionals from all over the world had the chance to leave before the siege, but they chose to stay. In solidarity with the Libyan people, they are treating both civilians and soldiers.
