Five People Beheaded For Witchcraft


Five people - including a man, his wife and teenage daughter - have been beheaded in India for practicing witchcraft.

Villagers are blaming witchcraft for the outbreak of an undiagnosed disease which has caused many people to fall ill.

Nearly a dozen people have been killed in the Kokrajhar district in the past week.
In the latest incident, a group of villagers killed a family-of-three after storming their house.

Around the same time, another group raided the house of a couple in a nearby village and hacked them to death.
