It may be a new weapon to strike fear in store clerks around the world: a grocer in Colombia has died days after two individuals injected him with an unknown poison outside his store, in the district of Facatativá west of Bogotá.
The Colombian daily El Espectador reported this past weekend that authorities had not yet managed to identify the poison, which appeared to have caused multiple organ failure. Initial reports did not give a motive for last week's attack. The suspects, caught on security cameras, first ordered ice cream before following the victim out of the shop, injecting him and fleeing.
The victim's widow said her husband was "suffocating" when he came back in for a glass of water. Police were looking for two men they suspected might be hired assassins, El Espectador reported.

High-flying ambitions for the sector
Hydrogen and electrification
Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce is looking to smash the speed record of electrical flights with a newly designed 23-foot-long model. Christened the Spirit of Innovation, the small plane took off for the first time earlier this month and successfully managed a 15-minute long test flight. However, the company has announced plans to fly the machine faster than 300 mph (480 km/h) before the year is out, and also to sell similar propulsion systems to companies developing electrical air taxis or small commuter planes.
