Tripoli 6 Update

Revere reports that there is a new article in Nature (pdf) demonstrating even stronger scientific support for the innocence of the Tripoli 6, the one doctor and five nurses facing a possible death penalty in Libya. The final verdict will be read on December 19th. The international pressure from the medical world as well as the blogosphere has been enormous, but there is no sign that the Libyan government is listening to it. Certainly now, in the last stretch, we need to renew our efforts and broadcast about this and ask our readers to write letters to people in power. Janet provides addresses and a sample letter. Other SciBlings, including John, Shelley, PZ, Orac and Razib have more informaiton and ideas as well.
Update: RPM explains the science behind the Nature report.
