SOFIA - President Nicolas Sarkozy received Bulgaria's top honour for his role in the freeing of Bulgarian medics from a Libyan jail.

Five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor sentenced to death on accusations of deliberately infecting 460 Libyan children with HIV were freed on July 24.

The medics' release opened the way for Sarkozy's visit to Tripoli which resulted in an arms deal and a nuclear energy deal. Sarkozy denied any connection between the arms deal and the HIV case. - Reuters
