Source: New Straits Times, August 24
   
 

Jakarta (Indonesia) -  Eight people in South Jakarta died after drinking moonshine alcohol bought from a local shop.  The victims, all men, succumbed to poisoning after drinking the toxic beverage.  The shopkeeper who made the “lethal” brew has been arrested.

Last year, twenty-five people, including four foreigners, died from methanol-laced palm wine in Bali, while 13 were killed in similar fashion in Yogyakarta earlier this year.
