Nigeria runs low on snakebite antidote

Thousands of people are bitten by snakes in Nigeria every year, and many people die or lose their limbs because of a shortage of antivenoms.

    Snake bites kill more than 100,000 people every year.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) says reducing the number of fatalities is a ''global health priority''.

    Many victims are in Nigeria, where, as Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris reports, doctors are struggling to save lives.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
