'Meteor' Crashes in Peru; Hundreds Fall Ill

Interesting story just cropped up on the BBC News site about what is suspected to be a meteor that crashed near a village in Peru over the weekend. Some cattle have died and around 600 people who visited the site have fallen ill - through headaches, vomiting and general nausea after inhaling the gases which are still spewing forth from the crater.

Officials are en route to carry out tests on the site and confirm whether or not the object was in fact a meteor. The meteor is buried in the earth at the bottom of 20ft deep, 98ft wide, crater it formed upon impact.
