Teenage girl allegedly involved in murder beaten, burnt alive

A teenage girl was viciously beaten before being burnt to death by a mob in Guatemala City.

According to The Daily Mail, the unnamed 16-year-old girl had allegedly been part of a gang with two other men that murdered a 68-year-old taxi driver.

While the two men managed to get away, she found herself surrounded by an angry vigilante mob, and was violently assaulted with punches and kicks.

After the brutal beating, the teenager was left in a daze with her face covered in blood.

She was then forcefully shoved to the ground by the mob, and then doused with a flammable liquid and set on fire.

The teenager can be seen struggling and writhing in pain on the ground and screaming.

Cheers can be heard from the mob as the flames engulfed her body.

Just as the fire was dying down, a man approached her and poured a can of petrol over her burning body, making the flames become even bigger.

The teenager was then left to die as the crowd looked on.

Police officers had tried to intervene but were blocked off by the crowd, The Daily Mail reported.
