Brazilian gang cooked, ate victims

DETAILS of a purported Brazilian cannibal gang that allegedly murdered at least five women before eating their flesh - and in some cases selling it in the form of meat pastries - have shaken the country.

In the video Isabel Cristina da Silva, 51, said she and her husband and his 25-year-old girlfriend had eaten 10 kilograms of human flesh over the course of five days in the city of Garanhuns.
