Amish-on-Amish attacks in Ohio, US

Help

Police in the US state of Ohio are investigating a rare violent feud in the Amish community, in which members have had beards and hair cut off.

Spiritual differences were said to be behind the attacks on more than half a dozen men and women, said police.

The investigation is being hampered by Amish reluctance to seek police help.
