Haemophiliac Iranian boy dies after sanctions disrupt medicine supplies

Manouchehr Esmaili-Liousi was a 15-year-old from a nomadic tribe based in the mountains near the city of Dezful, in Iran’s south-western province of Khuzestan.

He died in hospital after his family failed to find the vital medicine he desperately needed for his disease, Iran’s state news agencies reported on Wednesday.

The news was announced by Ahmad Ghavidel, the director of Iran’s haemophilia society.

He blamed Esmaili-Liousi’s death on the US and EU for their punitive measures against Tehran, which are also hitting imports of medicine and hospital equipment.
