Dozens of people have been poisoned and at least seven are dead after consuming batches of 'herbal' rice wine in Cambodia.

Cambodian authorities have launched a manhunt for the owner of a business reportedly behind batches of “herbal” rice wine which has poisoned dozens of people and killed at least seven.
