Nurse's murder charge after babies die in hospital fire

A nurse who was on duty at a hospital in Bucharest when a fire killed five newborn babies has been charged with murder.

Prosecutors say the blaze at the intensive care unit in the Giulesti Maternity Hospital started while the nurse was away from her post. Had she been there, she might have been able to save the babies' lives.
