Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, was involved in negotiations that led to the release of the Bulgarian nurses and Palestinian doctor in Libya.

The medical workers had been convicted and sentenced to death for intentionally infecting hundreds of Libyan children with HIV, though critics said the children died because of the state's inadequate medical system. Gadhafi talks with Alex Chadwick.
