Police neutralise 14 trying to kill 4 kidnappers in custody

Not fewer than 14 people have been shot dead by Police in Madagascar and 28 others injured after they tried to break into a police station to kill four men accused of kidnapping an albino child.

The kidnapping took place last week, according to Razafintsiandraofa, an MP for the Ikongo district, about 80 kilometers southeast of the capital Antananarivo.

According to reports, a mob of about 500 angry villagers armed with machetes and knives stormed the local police station in Ikongo, calling for the release of the four suspects arrested on Sunday, August 28, to deal with them.

The protesters “then tried to break into the station,” a police officer told AFP.
