Video: India’s brewing tragedy


  Officials blamed after Indian liquor poisoning  

More than 100 people have died from drinking illegal liquor in the Indian state of Gujarat, where alcohol is banned.

Despite the ban, black-market brewers often add chemicals and pesticides to strengthen their drinks.

Now, opposition leaders are accusing the ruling party of being behind the illegal trade.
