Geneva, March 7 (IANS/WAM) Two medical teams of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) were dispatched to Libya to help the victims of the anti-regime unrest.

The teams, comprising 10 doctors and nurses, will work with the Libyan health experts in Benghazi and Ajdabya cities.

The first team is in Al Jalaa Hospital in Benghazi, while the second team is in Ajdabya Central Hospital.

The ICRC has sent the teams in coordination with the Libyan Red Crescent and the Benghazi Health Committee.

“It’s heart-warming to see the devotion of Libyan medical staff working to save the lives of the wounded,” said Lena Netijaeff, an ICRC nurse. “Our aim is to support them in any way possible to cope with current casualties,” she added.
