A meaty incident

A man in China tried to hold up a restaurant with an unusual weapon, according to reports:

Mr He, 23, threatened to blow up a restaurant and its customers in Benxi, northern China, unless the staff handed over the contents of the till.
But a specialist bomb unit called to the scene quickly determined that the device was assembled with pork products.
"When we saw what he had round his waist we couldn't help laughing. Some of the sausages still had the wrappers on them," said one bomb squad officer. "It must have been terrifying for the customers but those things would only have gone off if you'd kept them past their sell by date."
