Cannibals arrested in Russia

One of my friends just attracted my attention to this while I was surfing the intermerweb and is making me slightly glad that first I didn't eat Street Kebabs in Russia and two that I didn't go to Perm while travelling. This story is taken from The Telegraph:

'Russian police arrest cannibals who sold corpse as kebabs

Russian police have arrested three homeless people suspected of eating a 25-year-old man they had butchered and selling other bits of the corpse to a local kebab house.

Suspicions were raised when dismembered parts of a human body were found near a bus stop in the outskirts of the Russian city of Perm, 1,150 km (720 miles) east of Moscow.

Three homeless men with previous criminal records have been arrested on suspicion of setting upon a foe with knives and a hammer before chopping up his corpse to eat, local investigators said in a statement on their Web site.

"After carrying out the crime, the corpse was divided up: part was eaten and part was also sold to a kiosk selling kebabs and pies," the Prosecutor-General's main investigative unit for the Perm region said in a statement issued on Friday.

It was not immediately clear from the statement if any of the corpse had been sold to customers.'

So top tip if you ever travel to Russia may be don't eat food being sold on the street. You never know what or who it might be.
