A nanny who suffered extensive burns when, she said, a relative of ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's family poured boiling water on her, has left Libya for Malta, where she will receive additional medical treatment, according to CNN staff traveling with her.
Shweyga Mullah's story pulled heartstrings worldwide. CNN journalists found her last month in the plush home of Gadhafi's son Hannibal Gadhafi after anti-Gadhafi forces overran Tripoli. Hannibal Gadhafi and his wife Aline fled to Algeria. Mullah was found sitting on the floor of an empty building.
Mullah, who is in her 20s, worked as a nanny for two of the couple's children. When she couldn't keep one from crying, and refused to beat the child, she said Aline Gadhafi poured the boiling water on her head.FULL STORY
