Tortured by Ants

This isn't a type of crime one hears about very often:

they tied the two youths to the trunk of an ant-infested tree and said, "These ants can eat you to the bone within a few hours." . . .
the boys were strapped to the tree for more than an hour, suffering the painful bites of thousands of ants.

On this subject, the Fossil Hunters site has an interesting article about forms of insect torture throughout history, including the gruesome ancient Persian practice of "scaphism," and the "Bug Pit" of Nasrullah Bahadur-Khan.
