excerpt:
 

"A girl aged 8 was stuffed into a bag after being denounced as a witch and was moments from being drowned in a canal by her family, a court was told yesterday. She had been starved, beaten, cut with a knife and had chilli peppers rubbed in her eyes in the plot to kill her, it was said.
The girl had been accused of being a witch by a boy, also 8, who was a member of her extended family in Hackney, East London."


.... Need more be said? How does this happen in 2005?
