Brazilian Doctor Diverts Burglars With Wall of HIV-Tainted Needles
Instead of using barbed wire or an alarm system to scare away burglars, one doctor in the Federal District of Brasilia, Brazil, installed a row of needles tainted with HIV-positive blood on top of an outer wall of her home, Fox News Latino reports.

USAID estimates that a third of all HIV-positive people in Latin America live in Brazil.
