Mystery 'witch' attacks school

Malawi: Pupils are fleeing Blantyre Secondary School after three girls received mysterious injuries in the night.

The assailant attacked the girls as they were sleeping in their dormitory.
We do not know how he or she entered the room because the door was bolted from inside and the windows are such that no one can squeeze through, one of the girls, Veronica Saiwala, said on Tuesday.
Saiwala said the identity of the assailant could not be established.
We believe it was a woman because she had bare breasts and was only putting on pants. She appeared very brown but her face was too dark to be recognised, she said while others remained unsure about the sex of the assailant.

The attacks are popularly believed to be associated with witchcraft or satanism. A similar panic happened in Zimbabwe a couple of years ago. Students flee school on satanism allegations - The Nation, 7th April 2004.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
