India ‘witch hunters’ kill mother and four children


Police in India are searching for more suspects in connection with the murder of a woman and her four children who were accused of being “witches”.

Six people in the eastern state of Orissa have already been arrested, but police believe more people were involved in the crime.

The bodies of Mangri Munda and her children were found in a well near their home on 26 January.

“Witch hunts” targeting women are fairly common in parts of India.
