Four young men have died and other two are in critical conditions after drinking counterfeit alcohol during celebrations, media outlets report.

Police and doctors confirm alcohol poisoning was the most likely cause of the incident which took place in a neighborhood of Yakoruda, a town in the Rhodope Mountains.

The men consumed around 4 liters of "bathtub" rakia after being invited over dinner by a neighbor. The so-called "pig wedding" consists of butchering a pig and pouring alcohol on it.
