US treats Libyan fighters

Twenty-two fighters in hospital near Boston for treatment of wounds sustained during uprising.

    Twenty-two Libyans who took up arms against Muammar Gaddafi and suffered injuries are recuperating in the United States.

    The men, aged from 16 to 49 years, were flown to a hospital north of Boston four weeks ago. Their injuries vary from gunshot wounds to head and spinal cord injuries.  

    Some are hoping to be home in the next few weeks. For others, it will be months before they can return to Libya.
