Three Chinese children die after poisoning from 'tainted milk'

At least 34 people have fallen ill after drinking milk that contained nitrate.

THE MOTHER OF THREE children found dead at a flat in Edinburgh has been charged with their murder, the Independent reports.

The bodies of Gianluca, 8, Augustino, 8, and Cecilia Riggi, 5, were found after reports of an explosion at their home. Police later said they found no evidence of an explosion or gas leak.

The children’s mother, Theresa Riggi, fell two stories from the building and was found by emergency services on the street outside. She remains in stable condition in hospital.

Riggi had been involved in a legal battle with the children’s father for their custody. Her husband had reported Riggi and his children missing on 11 July after she left their home and he was unable to contact her.

Riggi and the children were finally traced to the Edinburgh apartment on July 21.
