Rice wine death toll rises to 6 in Pursat

Contaminated rice wine has killed another person in Pursat province, raising the death toll to six since the poisoning began on Sunday in two districts. Chhorn Chhean, director of medical examinations for the provincial police, confirmed yesterday that the poisonings in Veal Veng and Phnom Kravanh districts, initially thought to be isolated incidents, stemmed from the same batch of rice wine. The contaminated rice wine was from Steoung Thmey village in Veal Veng district, he said. “We have confiscated all the rice wine from the seller,” he said, adding that it was being tested to determine what caused it to be poisonous.
