An indigenous woman has been burned alive in Paraguay after being accused of witchcraft.
Officials said Wednesday that members of the Mbya Guarani community tied 45-year-old Adolfina Ocampos to a wooden pole and shot arrows at her before they burned her alive.
Ocampos was sentenced to death last week by the community’s chief in Tahehyi, a village some 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of the capital, Asuncion.
