Woman accused of witch burnt alive

A 73-year-old woman was doused in petrol and burned alive on top of a bonfire after local people accused her of being a witch in Peruvian Amazon.

The burning took place last week, but the area is so remote that news did not reach the authorities.

A phone video given to prosecutors shows Villar being doused in gasoline while on top of a pile of dry logs and branches, then set on fire with a match.

Prosecutor Hugo Mauricio said that Rosa Villar Jarionca was sentenced to death by the remote Shiringamazu Alto community – after people claimed she made them sick through witchcraft.

‘The woman was burned alive because the people accused her of being a witch, ‘Mauricio said – saying that accusations of witchcraft are common among indigenous communities.
