Peruvian police on Thursday said five nightclubbers died after a tear gas grenade was detonated in the middle of a crowded disco. Police officer Jaime Munoz said the victims died of asphyxiation and seven others were hospitalized in the southern city of Juliaca. Nine people including a minor were arrested on suspicion of setting off the canister in the "Boom" nightclub, Munoz. Police officer John Mestas told the AP the 800-capacity club had as many as 1,200 people inside when the grenade went off Thursday.
