    Nepal's women's commission has condemned an attack in the remote west of the country on an elderly woman accused of witchcraft.

    The 60-year-old woman was stripped naked and had her head shaved. She was fed excrement and badly beaten.

    The woman was reportedly accused of using witchcraft to cause death and misfortune. The assault was apparently sanctioned by the village council.

    Nothing more clearly illustrates the need for education than does superstitious violence. It's always sad to hear of cases like these.

    It's stories like this which make me wonder whether, one day, our species will one day crawl backwards into the ocean.
