Madagascar: 13 dead after a family dispute of which 9 victims were burned alive
The village of Ambohimahasoa in east central Madagascar was the scene last Saturday, of terrible repeated tragedies that killed 13 people, including nine victims burned alive in burning house.

A person under the influence of alcohol, returning from the paddy fields has killed with a knife two brothers with whom he had disputes.
 
The man then fled, after the double murder, at residence of one of his sisters, pursued by relatives and friends of those killed.

In the house, 10 guests are there to attend a funeral in the village.
 
"Individuals who shouted revenge nailed the door so nobody could get out. They subsequently lighted a fire. While the blaze raged, two heads of families have somehow managed to escape. As soon as they were discovered one of them was shot with rifle shotgun. Quickly apprehended in its headlong flight, his companion in misfortune was gashed to death with machetes and cutlasses", said a policeman of the locality to the site lexpressmada.com
 
Nine bodies are found in the smoking ruins of the house completely destroyed by fire, including women and children, as well as the author of the double homicide.
