“Gun Death” Bad Beer

No we’re not talking Heineken!

But poorly brewed home-brew:

MAPUTO, Mozambique (AP) — Health authorities in Mozambique say 52 people have died after drinking a contaminated traditional beer.

…UPDATE: The Associated Press reported Sunday afternoon that the death toll had risen to 56 in the case of poisoned funeral beer in the southern African nation of Mozambique.

The AP also noted that the woman who brewed the traditional millet beer was among the dead; funeral-goers suspect that the beer was poisoned with crocodile bile while attendees were at the cemetery.

Insane, but I guess it’s not big deal so long as nobody was shot!
