    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.

    ...

    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 said.

    ...

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