Lynched witches accused of putting hex on sick boy

With lynch killings of so-called witches on the rise, a BBC correspondent today told his horrific story of how he saw five people accused of ‘bewitching’ an epileptic boy, being burned alive. As many as 150 elderly men and women accused of witchcraft have been lynched in Kenya, during the last six months, officials have said. Many were killed in gruesome ways, including being buried alive, by members of their own families and communities. Similar "witch" killings have happened in recent months in Nigeria and the Central African Republic.
