Australia's media watchdog on Thursday launched an investigation into the broadcast of a prank call to the London hospital treating Prince William's pregnant wife Catherine.

The hoax sparked global condemnation with the nurse who fielded the call, Jacintha Saldanha, apparently committing suicide. The result of her post-mortem is due to be announced later Thursday, according to British police.
