Woman died in fire - level 1, A12
A woman died in a fire. It was in central Nepal. She was 40 years old. She lived in a house with her two young children. People said that she was a witch. People from her family and two shamans came to her house. They hit her. Then, they killed her in fire. Her small daughter watched it.
The police took 8 people and 2 shamans to the police station. Some people who live in the village knew about it. Somebody called the police but nobody helped the woman.
Some people in Nepal believe in witches, but they don’t usually kill witches. The government will give 14 000 dollars to the woman’s children.
