They were subsequently sentenced to death by firing squad. He stated that Libya will soon pass new laws that will limit the number of crimes punishable by death. The International Herald Tribune has more. Officials in Bulgaria Thursday praised Libya's decision. "I feel satisfaction that after so many years we heard from Libya that it doesnt intend to carry out those sentences," stated Bulgarian Foreign Minister Solomon Passy.
