The League of Arab States issued an appeal to Tripoli and Sofia not to politicise the trial against the five Bulgarian nurses and the Palestinian doctor, sentenced to death in Libya.

In an official letter, the League asked all countries not to politicise the issue, as the accused have still one more chance for appealing their sentence.

The League also underlined the need to be compassionate to the HIV-infected Libyan children in order to curb the consequences of this "painful human catastrophe".

The five Bulgarian nurses and the Palestinian doctor were jailed on accusations they have intentionally infected 426 Libyan children with HIV in a Benghazi hospital eight years ago.
