Madagascar: Tourists Killed by Local Mob

Two French travelers were killed Oct. 3 after a local boy was found murdered on Nosy Be, a small island just off of Madagascar’s northwest shore. The two men were accused of killing the boy and harvesting his organs and were hunted down by a mob of nearly 100 locals before being tortured and burned to death. The boy’s uncle was also killed and several homes were torched. More than 20 arrests have been made since the incident, but authorities and many foreign embassies are warning foreigners to avoid travel to the area until order is restored.
