At several girls' schools in the African country of Malawi, students' illnesses have been blamed on a classmate's alleged "Satanism." How the "Satanists" are alleged to have caused the illnesses is not specified in the articles below. Perhaps by casting spells? If so, then these cases are yet another of the witchhunts - in the most literal sense - that have been common in some parts of Africa lately.
