The head of the Information Department of the Ministry of Health in the Interim Government, Moataz Trabelsi, said a US medical team specializing in open-heart surgery arrived at the Benghazi Medical Center on Monday to conduct more than 40 surgeries on children who are pre-registered cases of heart problems in Libya.

Trabelsi added that it took several attempts to reach the agreements that have been signed through between the Ministry of Health and an American foundation of heart surgeons, to cover the cost of ensuring the arrival of the team to the country and to provide the necessary treatment services for the patients.
