(AP) — King Edward VII hospital says a nurse involved in a prank telephone call to elicit information about the Duchess of Cambridge has died.

The hospital said today that Jacintha Saldanha had been a victim of the call made by two Australian radio disc jockeys.

They did not immediately say what role she played in the call.

Saldanha was found dead early Friday morning. Police say her death is unexplained.

The Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, had been in the hospital for acute morning sickness.

The prank phone call took place early Tuesday and the two radio personalities apologised the following day.
