Female IRA soldiers
Okiku, the haunted doll (Japan) resides at the Mannenji temple in the town of Iwamizawa (Hokkaido prefecture). According to the temple, the doll had short crop hair, but over time it has grown to roughly 10 inches (or 25 cm since the rest of the world uses the MS) and comes down to her knees. The hair is trimmed from time to time, but keeps growning back.
There is a story about a young boy that buys this doll for his little sister who happens to be sick. The little girl passes away due to her sickness a year later. A few weeks later the family started to notice the doll’s hair grow. Okiku is also the name of a maid that committed suicide and haunted her master.
Whatever the story or reason may be behind this creepy doll’s hair growth, this is so fucking creepy.

Chinguetti is probably the last place on Earth you would look for a library of rare books, but there are about 6,000 intact (for the most part) rare 9th century books behind those clay walls.
