Mystery Illness Strikes After Meteorite Hits Peruvian Village

LIMA (AFP) - Villagers in southern Peru were struck by a
mysterious illness after a meteorite made a fiery crash to Earth
in their area, regional authorities said Monday.

Around midday Saturday, villagers were startled by an explosion
and a fireball that many were convinced was an airplane crashing
near their remote village, located in the high Andes department
of Puno in the Desaguadero region, near the border with Bolivia.

Residents complained of headaches and vomiting brought on by a
"strange odor," local health department official Jorge Lopez
told Peruvian radio RPP.

Seven policemen who went to check on the reports also became ill
and had to be given oxygen before being hospitalized, Lopez

Rescue teams and experts were dispatched to the scene, where the
meteorite left a 100-foot-wide (30-meter-wide) and 20-foot-deep
(six-meter-deep) crater, said local official Marco Limache.

"Boiling water started coming out of the crater and particles of
rock and cinders were found nearby. Residents are very
concerned," he said.
