The Morning Call

The Police in Malawi have arrested up to 200 vigilante youth, who have been out hunting for ‘vampires’ in the country.

In Blantyre, Malawi’s second largest city, a 22-year old man was stoned and burned to death over a week ago.

The UN has since declared parts of the country no-go zones.
