ANKARA (Reuters) – Forty-four people in Turkey have died from bootleg alcohol poisoning over the past week, state media reported on Tuesday.
The first death occurred on Friday in the western province of Izmir, where 18 people have died, and state broadcaster TRT said bootleg alcohol consumption had claimed lives in at least seven other provinces across Turkey.
Police said they had detained 58 people over the last four days for producing and selling bootleg alcohol.
