In recent months in the cities of the African Republic of Malawi had killed eight people, where vigilant citizens were mistaken for vampires and killed, reports The Guardian.
Hunt for vampires began in Malawi in September, when many residents of this poor country believe that the state has a vampire infestation.
The first six murders were committed in small towns. All victims of the crowd were stoned or burned.
The last two murders occurred recently, in Blantyre is the financial and commercial centre of Malawi.
Since mid-September, the President of the Republic of Malawi began to visit the most remote corners of the country to calm the panic.
Note that US and UN announced some regions of Malawi threat to foreign nationals. In early October the UN withdrew staff from two districts in the South of the country.
