Police say 140 people have been arrested after a spate of deadly mob attacks on suspected "vampires" in Malawi. There have been at least nine killings, including an epileptic man who was burned to death and another person who was stoned to death in the country's second-biggest city, Blantyre.

The assaults started last month when rumours spread of "bloodsuckers" on the loose - and police say the situation has spun out of control....

Some residents - including health officials, teachers and traditional leaders - say their homes have been destroyed following speculation they were looking after "vampires".
