Libya asks EU for full ties in medics talks

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libya has asked for normalised relations with the European Union in talks over the release of six foreign medics jailed for infecting hundreds of children with HIV, an official source in Libya said on Monday.

Libya requested a complete normalisation of the North African country’s ties with EU states in the talks, the official said, without giving further details.

France’s first lady and a top European Commission official flew to Libya on Sunday to try to secure the release of the five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor held in Libya for eight years on charges of infecting over 400 children with HIV.
