Moonshine Kills 16 in Indonesia

The New Year’s celebrations turned deadly in Indonesia’s East Java province when 16 people died after drinking homemade alcohol. The victims died over the weekend. Local police believe the moonshine had been mixed with other substances—they've confiscated the concoction and were questioning the sellers. Moonshine is deadly in Indonesia, especially since much of the alcohol is mixed with toxic substances to increase its potency while also cutting costs.
