Feared as witches, couple lynched in Bolivia

Locals in Tomina, Chuquisaca, in the southeast, beat to death and strangled the couple, age 46 and 48, after filing charges against them for suspected witchcraft.

The mob fatally attacked the couple after learning that there would be no charges because witchcraft is not a crime here, the newspaper Correo del Sur reported yesterday.
