A Nepali court in late December found four Christians guilty of violence and witchcraft against a severely mentally ill woman whom they sought to heal, even though she testified in court in their favour, saying she was now better.

The four were sentenced to five years in prison. A fifth Christian, Rupa Thapa, was found not guilty and released after the hearing in a district in western Nepal.
