Pak hospital won’t give baby to prez for adoption

LAHORE: Authorities in Pakistan's Punjab province handed over a one-year-old abandoned girl to a childless couple after refusing some seven other hopefuls, including president Zardari, who wanted the baby for his sister Faryal Talpur.

Allama Iqbal Medical College Principal Javed Akram handed over the girl, Fatima, by hospital doctors, to Muhammad Iqbal and his wife Ayesha during a ceremony held on Wednesday.

The adoption procedure was completed after the administration of state-run Jinnah Hospital turned down applications from seven persons, including Zardari, who wanted the baby for his sister.

The ailing girl was left by an unknown woman at Jinnah Hospital some weeks ago.
