A THREE-YEAR-OLD girl has been killed in a suspected exorcism by family members who believed she was possessed by evil spirits, Malaysian police said yesterday.

Officers raided a house in northern Penang state late on Sunday after receiving a call from a family member and found eight people lying on top of the girl.

The girl was face down under the human pile, which consisted of her parents, grandmother, uncle, aunt, two cousins and an Indonesian maid, they said.

The girl died of suffocation, and all eight involved have been detained.
