Girl dies after monks administer ‘black magic’ exorcism

BANGKOK --- Superstitions more suited to the 16th century rather than the 21st have claimed the life of a teenage girl, who succumbed after undergoing a ritual to banish a "black magic curse".

The cause of the girl's death remains a mystery as the monks have fled and removed traces of the so-called holy water, while the body has been cremated. During the ritual on Sunday, the girl vomited and went into shock, after which she was taken to Krang Khro Hos...Keep on reading: Girl dies after monks administer ‘black magic’ exorcism.....»»
