At least 15 people including two women died in a southern Pakistani town after drinking tainted liquor, with dozens more sickened, police said on Tuesday.

The incident is the latest to highlight the proliferation of low-grade liquor in the Islamic country, which officially bars Muslims from drinking.

The poisonings occurred on Monday evening in the town of Tando Muhammad Khan, some 250 kilometres (155 miles) northeast of Karachi. (AFP)
