Libya 'tortured' Bulgarian medics
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi said some of the medics' allegations were lies

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son has said the six Bulgarian medics 
who were imprisoned for deliberately infecting children with HIV were 
tortured.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi told Al Jazeera TV that Libyan investigators 
tortured the medics with electric shocks and threatened to target their 
families.

But Mr Gaddafi denied his country would face legal action for 
mistreating them.

The five nurses and a Palestinian-born doctor served eight years in 
detention before being freed by Libya last month.
