ISLAMABAD, Mar 22 : At least 24 people in southern Pakistan have died from poisoning after drinking illegally-made alcohol, police say.
A number of others are in hospital after Monday's incident in Sindh province. At least two of those who died were women.
Most of the victims were from the country's Hindu minority, although some were Muslims, reports said.
Muslims are forbidden from buying or drinking alcohol in Pakistan - and minorities need a permit to buy liquor.
However, many people illegally brew alcohol at home, and there have been several cases of mass poisonings in the past.     ?BBC
