A Paraguayan woman, Adolfina Ocampos, 45, was lynched by members of an indigenous community in Paraguay this week. Officers said the woman was accused of witchcraft and was taken to a river where she was submerged under water. The mob then tied her to a pole and carried her to another site where they prepared a grave, filled it with firewood and set her alight while she was still alive.
The men later burned the remains of the body on a camp fire, investigators say.
A group of seven men and a 14-year-old boy have confessed to what took place, according to police.
