Nurses recount Libya horror

Five Bulgarians accused of infecting children with HIV tell Al Jazeera they were tortured.


    In 2004 five Bulgarian nurses were found guilty by a Libyan court of deliberately infecting hundreds of children at a Benghazi hospital with HIV.

    The nurses, who have always maintained their innocence, say they had been tortured into confessing.

    They spent years on death row before finally being freed and sent home in 2007.

    Sonia Gallego spoke with them.
