Skeptic News: Possess like an Egyptian

20120703-172605.jpgAn 18-year-old Egyptian girl who shed ‘blood tears’ claimed she had been touched by jinn, which are ghosts and spirits popular in Upper Egyptian folklore.

The girl appeared on Al Nahar Television, to share her experience.
She said she had been touched by tribe of about one-thousand jinn.

She claims to have been exorcised by Amr Al-Laithi, a Muslim scholar, who recited verses from Qur’an as the teenager fell unconscious.

The scholar claimed that the Jinn only had an external influence on the girl and reported that there was no change in her voice, and too, that she did not suffer from physical convulsions during the exorcism.

Bloody tears can be a symptom of Haemolacria which is a physical condition that causes a person to produce tears that are partially composed of blood. It can manifest as tears that are anything from merely red-tinged to appearing to be entirely made of blood.

It is a symptom of many diseases and Acute haemolacria can occur in fertile women and seems to be induced by hormones.
