A 16-year-old girl has been beaten and then burned to death by a lynch mob, who accused her of killing a taxi driver.

A video showing the grisly attack -which took place in a village – has been circulated across the internet.

The mob beat the girl before dousing her in petrol and setting her alight. After writhing in pain, the girl dies. In the video, young children and elderly women are seen looking on.
