The title is Mob burns 'witches' to death in Kenya but the article states that the people were "clubbed to death" and then the bodies were burned. Were they burned or clubbed to death? Wikidsoup (talk) 16:35, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

I think the title is wrong per this sentence: "The mob then threw their slain bodies into their burning homes".--SVTCobra 16:45, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
How about "Mob massacres"? --Brian McNeil / talk 16:48, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Or just kills. Massacre conjures up different emotions for different people. Some argue that it has to be a certain number of victims etc, etc. Rather just avoid that debate. --SVTCobra 16:52, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I agree with SVTCobra Anonymous101 :) 16:56, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Renamed, although the main page still shows the old article name. This will be fixed automatically soon, correct? Wikidsoup (talk) 18:17, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Correct on main page now. Wikidsoup (talk) 18:18, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
The original sources used didn't mention the clubbings. Durova (talk) 19:02, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

The article's first paragraph still contradicts itself: "A mob burned eleven elderly people to death..." and then it says, "Their throats where slashed and they were clubbed to death. The mob then threw their slain bodies into their burning homes." --Quadrastreet (talk) 19:32, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Fixed the inconsistency. There seems to be contradiction in some of the sources too, so I just generalised so that it wasn't wrong. Wikidsoup (talk) 19:53, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
