Libya Conflict http://www.kplu.org en After consulate bombing, Libyan doctors getting help in Seattle http://www.kplu.org/post/after-consulate-bombing-libyan-doctors-getting-help-seattle <p></p><p>The rocket attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens gets plenty of attention in Congress. But, not many have heard about a global health project Stevens left behind.</p><p>When Stevens was murdered last Sept. 11th in Benghazi, Libya, he had a meeting scheduled with a group of doctors the very next day, Sept. 12th. They're trying to setup Libya’s first modern 911 system.</p><p>Now, Stevens' sister, in Seattle, is bringing a higher profile to that unfinished project – helping a group from Boston that’s working with the Libyan doctors.
