More than two dozen Libyans wounded in recent fighting are being flown to Boston and Germany for medical care.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced in a Pentagon statement late Thursday that 24 seriously wounded Libyan fighters will be flown Saturday to Spaulding Hospital in Boston and six critical cases will go to Germany. They said the wounded suffer from conditions that cannot be treated in Libya.

The statement said the emergency medical evacuations were requested by the Libyan rebels' Transitional National Council. It said the United States is offering the help as a small token of support because it is committed to Libya's future.
