South Africa: Boy, 14, 'Murders Family In Satanic Killing'

A South African teenager has been arrested for allegedly hacking to death four family members with an axe, including his mother and an infant sister, in an apparent satanic attack.

The 14-year-old boy's mother, 42, was found dead in the family's corrugated iron-shack home, and the body of his three-month-old sister in a nearby field.

His 58-year-old grandmother and seven-year-old brother died in hospital.

The boy's two other sisters, aged eight and nine, ran to their neighbours during the killings and raised the alarm early on Friday morning.
