Thai Chili Terrorists

In another case of (arguably) overreaction to terrorism fears, the Thai Cottage restaurant in Soho, UK was raided for burning chili peppers. Nam Prik Pao is a super-spicy chili dip that is made by burning the peppers, which created a strange smell. Some concerned citizens phoned it in, prompting the police to close off the street and search for the source of the smell. It must be a pretty strong smell, as one bystander reported coughing as a result, but I also suspect the restaurant would be making this dip on a regular basis.

The BBC article conveniently provides the recipe so you too can be raided by your local counter-terrorist team under suspicion of being a chili pepper terrorist.
