Police say that a mob in rural Bolivia has killed a couple suspected of casting spells on neighbors.

Chuquisaca region Police Col. Raul Matos says neighbors in town of Ichupampa had denounced the couple to officials. When they took no action, a crowd seized the two and killed them Saturday. He says the bodies have been recovered, but he did not have details on what sort of spells the two allegedly had cast. (AP)
