An alleged paedophile accused of raping and killing a four-year-old girl has been dragged out of his cell and killed.
An angry mob stormed the police station where he was being held, hauled him along the street then hanged him from a tree.
Earlier this week a child was found dead in Reyes, Bolivia, while visiting the area with her parents for her grandmother’s funeral.
But she vanished and when her body was later found, investigators quickly realised the little girl had been raped and murdered.
Hours after the body was recovered, police arrested a suspect. But without waiting for a verdict in a court case or indeed to find out what the evidence was against the suspect, angry locals soon stormed the station and took the man out.
