Pakistan: prelate calls for investigation into poisoning of Christian nurses
August 03, 2012
A leading Pakistani prelate has asked the National Commission for Justice and Peace, a Catholic advocacy organization, to investigate the poisoning of Christian nurse trainees in Karachi.
“Was it a religious motive, was it a criminal motive, or was it purely accidental?” said Archbishop Joseph Coutts of Karachi. “Whatever the truth, it is definitely a cause for concern and we are hoping to get a clearer picture of what really did happen as soon as possible.”
