Violence follows nun’s murder in Madagascar
March 06, 2013
Days after the murder of an 82-year-old nun in Madagascar, a crowd of youths attempted to enter a jail in order to lynch her suspected murderers.
Police fired on the crowd, killing one and seriously wounding three others.
“Now the people's anger has been directed against the police for having fired on the crowd, composed mostly of young people,” said Father Luca Treglia, director of Radio Don Bosco in Antananarivo, the nation’s capital.
