Eight Christian trainee nurses were admitted to Pakistan’s Civil Hospital after they allegedly drank poisoned tea prepared by their hostel on Sunday night, ICC reports. Local Christians claim that the nurses were deliberately poisoned because of their faith. At a press conference at the Karachi Press Club, Christian activists alleged the hospital was hiding facts. The hostel superintendent, Nasreen Gill, told local news that the girls had made the tea themselves. "We have sent the samples of the 'poisoned tea' to Aga Khan Hospital and the toxicology report will be available [Wednesday]," Gill said.
