Big dysentery outbreak in Russian south

Big dysentery outbreak in Russian south
Dysentry has hit 332 people – most of them children – in Russia's southern Stavropol region. Low-quality milk products supplied for nursery schools are being blamed for the poisoning.

Twenty-four children are still in hospital.

The Federal Consumer Protection watchdog says the number of people infected may increase but not dramatically.
