 Uganda children die of  pesticide pancakes

BUDUMBA, Uganda  18 Feb (ANA) - Two children in Uganda have died and 11 others have been hospitalised after they ate pancakes made with pesticides instead of cooking oil, according to the Daily Monitor newspaper.
All 13 children are from the same family in Budumba, western Uganda.
The newspaper reports that the children made the pancakes themselves - a dish commonly known in Uganda as Kabalagala.
But the Daily Monitor adds that they used the wrong ingredients - mistaking a pesticide, used to grow watermelons and vegetables, for cooking oil.
The children then started vomiting, the news site reports, and were taken to Busolwe hospital where two of them died and the 11 others are being treated (ANA)
