On June 4, 2005 BBC News reported, "Hundreds of central African children living in the UK may have suffered abuse or even been killed after being accused of witchcraft, charities say. The warning follows the conviction of three people over the torture of an eight-year-old girl. Four London charities, working with people from central Africa, told BBC News this was not an isolated case. The children may have been returned to their home countries for 'deliverance services' or other punishments."
