Strange deaths in India

Seven people have died in Uttar Pradesh of mysterious injuries which locals blame on UFOs- in this case flying spheres with flashing blue and red lights.

Raghuraj Pal, whose neighbour Ramji Pal died recently in Shanwa, said: A mysterious flying object attacked him in the night. His stomach was ripped open. He died two days later.

More prosaic explanations include mass hysteria in which the victims unconsciously inure themselves, and a particular type of insect which leaves 9cm bite marks.

Still in India, eight people were killed and fifteen injured during a procession in honour of a local goddess in Hyderabad. A tractor had been converted into a tall chariot for the occasion and the devotees were electrocuted when it hit high tension electricity cables.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
