Exorcism turns fatal
A YOUNG Palestinian man has died after being badly beaten in an “exorcism”, medical and police sources in the West Bank town of Hebron said. The family of the 19year- old with psychological problems had called in two “healers”, a man and a woman, who beat the young man to drive out evil “spirits”, Palestinian police sources said. He was critically injured and taken to hospital in Hebron where he died. The “healers” were arrested, as were the victim’s father and brother.
