It happened in the city of Tete, Mozambique, over the weekend. A public health official tells Radio Mozambique, early Saturday, people were poisoned at a funeral after drinking a common, homemade beer known as pombe.
The International Business Times reports someone may have slipped poisonous crocodile bile into the beer while the families were at the cemetery.
