Israelis to Treat Azerbaijani Burn Victims

Israel sent a team of medical experts Wednesday to the former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan to assist in the treatment of burn victims from Saturday’s subway fire in the capital of Baku.

Two Israeli doctors traveled to Azerbaijan, bringing an aid package of $25,000 worth of medicines, intravenous solutions and other medical materials.

About 300 people died in the weekend fire, which also left hundreds wounded.
