    Two South African women were burnt to death by a group of students who suspected the victims had bewitched their high school with evil spirits, the South African Press Association reported on Sept. 5. The 60-year-old women were dragged from their homes near Manguzi in KwaZulu-Natal province and taken to a sports field by students from Manhlenga High School, police told SAPA. There they were doused with petrol and set alight, police said. One died at the scene and the other later in hospital. (Reuters)
