Super size that

I have been reluctant to eat from any kebab house, anywhere on the globe since two unfortunate events in my life occurred;

1. An evening out in Bristol, UK in 1995. A nice night in a disco followed by a 4 am breakfast of kebab from the kebab house ended with me retching in my friend's neighbour's front garden.

2. After a simple shwarma in Bet Shaan the night before I stood in line at the main Bus Station in Jerusalem waiting for the trip to Tel Aviv. Stomach ache. Nausea. Headache. Shwarma returned.

And a new addition, number 3 if you will;

Russian police have arrested three homeless men suspected of killing and eating a 25 year old - and selling parts of his body to a kebab and pie kiosk.

The alarm was raised when bits of a corpse were found near a bus stop on the outskirts of Perm, about 720 miles east of Moscow.

A statement on the Perm police website said the three alleged cannibals had previous criminal records.

The statement said they were detained on suspicion of stabbing a man to death and then chopping him up for food.

It went on: "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."

It was not clear from the statement if the kiosk had cooked any of the man's flesh and sold it to customers.

The three suspects are due to appear in court on Monday.
