Mother Hacks Son To Death

A Malawian mother has hacked her 9-year-old son to death with an axe after discovering they both had HIV.

Police said the mother and son both tested positive for HIV at a hospital in the northern district of Karonga after suffering prolonged bouts of malaria.

Police spokesman Enoch Livason said: "She went home and picked up an axe and started cutting her son into pieces.

"Cries from the child attracted neighbours who stopped her and took her to police."

Mr Livason said the woman's husband was thought to have died from HIV/Aids two years ago.

Malawi, with around 11 million people, is one of the countries at the centre of the Aids pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa, which is home to almost two-thirds of those infected with HIV/Aids worldwide.

Aids kills about 10 people every hour in the impoverished country, whose government estimates that around 1 million Malawians are infected with the HIV virus and about 640,000 have already died from Aids-related illnesses since 1985.

I know mothers try to protect their kids, but this just goes way too far.

Most of the mentally ill have the good manners to keep their innermost delusions to themselves. You should too.

That you thought it was a Christian is just an admission of an unreasoning prejudice. These are not attractive in any variety.

Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
