AIDS medics in Libya - Nature

In this focus

Lawyers defending six medical workers who risk execution by firing squad in Libya on charges of deliberately infecting more than 400 children with HIV have called for the scientific community's support. They want international pressure put on Libya to order an independent scientific review of how the children became infected, in a bid to prove the medics' innocence.

Since Nature published an Editorial and News article on the issue, the blogosphere has since amplified the lawyers’ initial call. Nature will continue to follow developments and collect them in this web focus, so check back here for updates and reader comments. You can post your thoughts on this case to the Nature Newsblog. All articles are FREE ACCESS.
