Couple imprisoned for exorcism
A couple who thought a girl was a witch and possessed by evil sprits have been sentenced to jail by a Swedish court for grievous bodily harm after they tried to "exorcise the spirits".
The couple were looking after the girl, a relative, and forced her to drink her own urine, gave her electric shocks in the mouth and beat her so badly she had to be taken to hospital, Swedish Radio P4 Sjuhärad reports.
Several similar cases have been taken to court in the town of Borås over the past few years.
The pair were sentenced to 20 months, and eight months imprisonment respectively.
