Witchcraft torture three jailed

Three people have been jailed for a total of 24 years over the torture an eight-year-old girl who they accused of being a witch.

The Old Bailey trial heard the girl was beaten, cut with a knife and had chilli peppers rubbed into her eyes at a flat in Hackney, east London, in 2003.

Her aunt was convicted of child cruelty while Sebastian Pinto and Sita Kisanga were convicted of helping her.

They believed beating her would drive out demons that possessed her.
