Three hundred Mexican villagers mistakenly took justice into their own hands, killing two suspects who they thought were going to abduct a child.
According to the mayor Ismael Gadoth Tapia, about the angry villagers converged in the middle of a dirt road in Santa Ana Ahuehuepan, a small town in the state of Hidalgo, and set a man and a woman on fire with gasoline on Thursday.
The 40-year-old man and woman in her 50s, whose identities haven't been released, were beaten and set on fire. He died on the spot and the woman was transported to hospital where she died from the burns.
Their assassination is the second lynching that has occurred in Mexico in three days.
