One more lynched by Madagascar mob on tourist island
NOSY BE, Madagascar (AFP) - A mob in Madagascar lynched two Europeans and a local man on Thursday suspecting them of murdering a young boy for his organs, the authorities and witnesses said.
Residents on the tourist island of Nosy Be island went on a day-long rampage after a missing eight-year-old was reportedly found dead.
"Rioters launched a manhunt and killed the Europeans," in the early hours of the morning, gendarmerie commander Guy Bobin Randriamaro told AFP.
Hours later in a near-by suburb, a Malagasy was also killed, as mobs of hundreds of men roamed the streets, shuttering shops and setting fires.
