24 Wounded Libyan Fighters Receive US Medical Care


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton today announced the the United States is transporting 24 seriously wounded fighters to Spaulding Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

Ms. Clinton said that after months of struggle and sacrifice, the Libyan people have liberated their country with the support of the United States and the international community. The violent dictator and his regime have collapsed. She highlighted that Libya’s new freedom has come at a price in human life and suffering.

“Just as the United States and the international community stood with the Libyan people during the revolution, we continue to work with Libya to address urgent humanitarian needs.” -Ms. Clinton

According to Ms. Clinton, an additional six critical cases will be transferred to Germany for immediate care. She said all of its patients were injured as a result of the recent fighting and suffer from conditions that cannot currently be treated in Libya.

Ms. Clinton emphasized that the United States offers the humanitarian gesture of emergency medical evacuation assistance as a token of its support for the democratic aspirations of the Libyan people and its hope for a continued strong partnership as they build a new Libya.
