Poison 'medicine' sample mailed

A junior high school student in Tokyo falls ill Aug. 26 after trying a ''diet medicine'' sent to him in the mail that was later found to be poison. Twenty-two other students and a teacher received similar packages, and police have begun investigating the case. The picture shows the 20-30 milliliter plastic bottle that contained the brown liquid, which was actually the disinfectant cresol.
