Man burnt alive for allegedly being a Vampire

A young man in Malawi suspected of vampirism or blood sucking has been beaten up, set ablaze and killed by a mob near Blantyre. He was found by a graveyard near a main road outside the city and taken to a police station on Thursday.

It is likely that he was suffering from a mental illness or epilepsy as he was carrying a health card and may have been returning from hospital, BBC was told.

A mob who had heard about the "vampire" rumours invaded the police station and dragged him outside. His death brings the number of those killed for being suspected “vampires” to eight since September.
