Relatives of the five Bulgarian nurses sentenced to death in Libya will travel to Tripoli for Christmas, reports say.

One representative of the family of each nurse will receive a visa for the trip, the Bulgarian news agency announced.

The state will cover the expenses of the five.

In May 2004 Libya found the five Bulgarian health workers and a Palestinian doctor guilty of having caused the death of 40 children and of infecting almost 400 others with HIV at the Benghazi hospital. The nurses were sentenced to death by a firing squad, sparkling cries of foul from Bulgaria and its allies the United States and the European Union.
