ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Students ill after drinking poison-laced water; recovering at hospital”

  1. The article says ‘Poison laced water’ which means that there is evidence that the poison was intentionally put in the water. Is this confirmed? If not, the headline is misleading. Without confirmation, this is still a theory and it could well be a case of contaminated water instead of poisonous water.
