Tripoli, 27 January 2014:
Murzak hospital has asked the government for urgent medical supplies and aid as it struggles to . . .[restrict]cope with the wounded being brought in from ongoing clashes in Sebha.
Manager of medical affairs at Murzuk hospital Mohammed Ali Whamer told the Libya Herald that 32 injured Tebus had died in the hospital, which has also given medical treatment to 91 wounded.
Murzak hospital was unable to provide the level of treatment the critically-injured needed, he said, adding that some of those who died, could have been saved at a different medical institution.
Whamer said the size of the hospital and its limited resources and medical supplies meant it was ill-equipped to respond to the current crisis, which sees daily admissions to the hospital.
The hospital had sent a number of letters to the Ministry of Health demanding urgent medical supplies, he said, although it had not yet received any response. [/restrict]
