McCain Suggests Sending US Hospital Ship to Med to Aid With Injured Libyans

 

Senator John McCain has suggested sending a hospital ship to Malta or Tripoli. During the senator´s recent stopover in Malta whilst visiting Tripoli, the Maltese Prime Minister had made this suggestion to McCain.

Malta has been treating injured Libyans. This has resulted in comments about overcrowding and long waiting lists for locals. A founder of the Maltese NGO I-Go Aid, who is currently in Libya, criticized the comments as shameful.

As fighting is becoming more violent in Gaddafi strongholds, the International Red Cross has warned about an imminent medical emergency in these towns.
