Das WTF?

In Frankfurt, five Koreans were arrested for a beating / exorcism that led to the death of a woman:

“German police have arrested five members of a South Korean family suspected of beating to death a 41-year-old woman in a religious exorcism ritual in a hotel room.

The relatives allegedly believed that the woman, also South Korean, was ‘possessed by demons’ and tied her to a bed, gagged and severely beat her for two hours with the goal of ‘driving out the devil’, prosecutors said.

‘I have never seen anything like it,’ said Nadja Niesen, chief prosecutor of the city of Frankfurt.”

South Korea has no shortage of religious kookery going around, but this is horrible.

And why in Germany?
