Gluten intolerance

The Daily Mail reports on 16 Afghans and 2 Iraqis found in a tanker full of gluten.

A jumble of arms and legs caked in white powder, they had crammed into the tanker in a desperate bid to smuggle themselves into this country.

There were 18 of them in there in all, and with only a limited air supply who knows if they would have even reached their intended destination alive.

Touching though the Daily Mail’s concern is for the men, their readers have decided on an alternative human interest angle of this story by voting for this reader comment:

They are in there for hours so we can only wonder how contaminated it is when it finally reaches our table.
