A woman is fighting for her life in Germany after being set on fire as she walked along the street, reports the Express.
She was so badly burned over all of her body that rescuers said it was impossible to tell her sex.
Police say the victim, 38, was torched by an African who has lived in Germany for 20 years.
It is thought she was attacked by her 41-year-old husband.
Officers say the man, who comes from the same country as the victim, hurled petrol over her as she walked on Wednesday in Kronshagen, near Kiel.
She is thought to have been leaving a clinic in the town when she was set ablaze, and walked down the road screaming for help.
A witness said: "It seemed an eternity until the flames were out. Her screams will haunt me for the rest of my days.
"I just saw a flame, a man with burning trousers which he tried to out and a woman on fire, in flames, screaming and screaming and screaming.
"Passers-by immediately rushed to help and tried to extinguish the flames on the woman's body.
"The flames were almost extinguished, she began to burn again, from head to toe in flames, with a fire extinguisher and blankets they succeeded to finally stop the fire."
The attacker was arrested soon afterwards near the crime scene and police took him into custody.
