Two nuns who had travelled to Africa are under investigation by the catholic church after they came back to Italy while pregnant.
The two nuns had travelled to Africa for a missionary trip.
One of the women went to hospital with stomach pains only to learn that she was expecting. It is said that the lady was transferred to a different order and she may leave monastic life in order to raise her child.
The second lady who is mother superior travelled back to her home country Madagascar. She was one month pregnant.
An investigation had been launched as they both breached strict rules of chastity.
