Woman died in fire - level 2, A12

A woman was killed in a fire in central Nepal. She was 40 years old and lived in a house with her two young children. People said that she was a witch. Members of her family and two shamans came to her house, beat her, and then killed her in fire. Her 9 year-old daughter had to watch the whole situation.

The police put 8 people and 2 shamans into prison. Some people who live in the neighborhood knew about the attack. Somebody called the police but nobody helped the woman.

Some people in Nepal believe in witches but nobody is usually killed. The government told people not to believe shamans. The government will give 14 000 dollars to the woman’s children.
