Gaddafi's Family Nanny Begins Medical Treatment For Burns, Abuse (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

Though it's likely to be a long recovery process, the badly burned nanny of Muammar Gaddafi's grandchildren has just begun receiving treatment in a Tripoli hospital this week.

As CNN is reporting, Shwygar Mullah is finally beginning to get the antibiotics and medical attention she needs after allegedly being brutally abused at the hands of Hannibal Gaddafi's wife, Aline. According to Mullah, Aline repeatedly scalded her with boiling water when she refused to beat one of the children.

After she was discovered at a ransacked Gaddafi family residence Sunday, the 30-year-old Mullah said she had never been paid for her work.

Doctors who spoke to CNN with surprising candor said actually began treating Mullah back in June, but say they were ordered to stop treatments after being bullied by the Gaddafi family. "There's no humanity," Dr. Rowida Zawiya said. "...Maybe they're insane."
