On July 24, 2007, the five Bulgarian nurses and the Palestinian, unjustly accused of infecting Libyan children with the AIDS virus, were freed by the Libyan government. They had spent a tumultuous seven years in prison, much of the time on death row, having been accused of injecting the children with tainted blood they had brought with them. This was not only preposterous but also an impossibility as the particular strain of the AIDS virus had been found in Libya, two years prior.
