3 Nigerians Accused of Kidnapping Beaten To Death In Bissau

Three Nigerians accused of kidnapping a child were lynched on Tuesday by
an angry mob of young rioters in Bissau. The AFP reported that the trio was
killed after the disappearance of a young boy on Tuesday morning in the
capital of Guinea-Bissau.
A rumour quickly spread across the city that the child had been taken by a
group of Nigerians, prompting an angry crowd to gather which security forces
were unable to control.
An AFP journalist saw two of the Nigerian bodies in the morgue.
Hundreds of angry rioters, mostly young and armed with stones and bottles,
managed to grab one of the suspected kidnappers from a police car as
officers stood by powerless, according to the AFP journalist. "Death to
Nigerians! Enough is enough, stop! The Nigerians must leave," chanted the
Police fired warning shots and tear gas in an effort to disperse the mob, but
they were unsuccessful.
