Police in South Africa are investigating the mysterious deaths of 22 people who were found dead in a tavern with no “apparent signs of injury”.

Up to 22 people have been found dead after a possible “substance exposure” at a nightclub, with “bodies strewn on tables and chairs”.

Police and paramedics were called to the Enyobeni Tavern in the South African city of East London in the early hours of the morning.

However, according to local media reports, nearly two dozen people were found dead.

The bodies are described as lying on chairs with no obvious signs of injury.
