Kuwait -- Attempted murder charges filed against a domestic worker in Salmiya were later withdrawn after investigations revealed that no foul play took place in a case where children were poisoned. Police were approached recently by an expatriate man reporting that his three sons suffered food poisoning after drinking juice prepared by the domestic worker. The Asian worker was summoned after her employer charged her with attempted murder. Investigations later revealed that the poisoning happened by accident after she failed to wash glasses properly after cleaning them with a toxic detergent. Investigations are still ongoing.
