Scalded nanny to Gadhafi's grandchildren getting hospital treatment

A former nanny to grandchildren of Moammar Gadhafi, who was allegedly burned by boiling water, was receiving medical treatment Tuesday, according to CNN's Dan Rivers, who visited the woman at a hospital in Tripoli. The former nanny said she was burned for failing to keep a child quiet.

    I believe the Law, A Eye for A Eye should fall into place when these people are brought to justice.

    The individual responsible for this evil act must be brought to book. The United Nations must demand for her arrest and use every legal means necessary to get the Algerians to hand her over to the UN to face charges.

      I agree. But doubt it will be done.

    I just love how the justification for taking these leaders out is cobbled together after the fact. And how they got him to give up their WMDs to play nice with the international community, then attacked him. I'm sure leaders of No. Korea and Iran are noting. The West needs to get out of Africa and now!

    They labled Jesus "rebel" too. I don't recall them just scalding him though.

      Are you saying Jesus is like the nanny, the rebels, or Gadhafi? I'm confused.

    @citigirl. If the west were to get out of Africa, who would burn Africa's oil amd wear Africa's diamonds? Who would bribe African leaders to gain access to Africa's natural resources ?

    Bimbo does have a point. China has rayped Africa just like the others have throughout history, even today. Ain't it funny how those who raype Africa of her resources struggle with wealth and obesity as Africa starves. Laughable how people still scratch their heads wondering how such a rich continent is starving.

    This story is truly unbelivable. It's hard to believe that anyone would do that to anybody for such a small thing like failing to keep a child quiet.

    I can't help but notice – she's still better looking than any of the Gadhafi women.

    Given what usually happens with American justice and the rich, she would have walked away unscathed. The nanny won't, but she would have.

    Lol. True!

    How can anyone do something like this to another person, or anything for that matter ? Once is bad enough, but multiple times. For once, I've got to admit that I'm at a loss for words. This is just really disturbing.

    This is the same husband and wife who got arrested in Switzerland for assaulting domestic staff.
