A South Korean couple have been arrested on suspicion of beating their three children to death to cure them of a “demonic illness”, police say.
The children – five, eight and 10 years old – were found beaten and starved to death at a vicarage in South Cholla province.
Police arrested a 43-year-old “pastor” who had set up a “church” – and his wife.
The couple believed that the children’s illness was caused by demons.

The children were supposedly beaten for flu-like systems. I had a hard time reading this story; it’s so awful.
