Methanol-tainted, bootlegged liquor has unleashed a wave of alcohol poisonings in the Czech Republic. Many people have died and the Czechs are worried. The authorities have confiscated some, but not all, of the tainted spirits.
Liquor, spiked with industrial methanol, can be a deadly concoction. Those who have survived drinking the poisonous cocktail are likely to suffer permanent damage. The government has banned the sale, distribution and export of spirits with more than 20 percent alcohol content. But who is responsible? Czech police say they've made several arrests in connection with the production of the contaminated liquor.
