ITV News reports that fifty-six people have reportedly died after drinking poisoned beer in Mozambique, health officials have said.

An additional 49 people are being treated in hospital in the northeastern Tete province and 146 more have come forward to be examined, Associated Press reported.

Those who drank the contaminated traditional beer were attending a funeral, district health official Alex Albertini told Radio Mozambique.

Police are investigating whether the beer was poisoned with crocodile bile during the service.

The woman who brewed the beer is among the dead.

Blood and beer samples are being tested by a local health authority as part of the probe.

This is an unbelievably sad news story.

Rest In Peace.
