I'm using a fresh Ubuntu 17.10 and I cannot import libxml2 using

Python 3.6.3 (default, Oct  3 2017, 21:45:48)
[GCC 7.2.0] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import libxml2
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/", line 1, in <module>
    import libxml2mod
undefined symbol: _PyVerify_fd
>>> quit()
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

There are some other related issues on Fedora and Debian.

The possible solution was upgrade to a stable version as 2.9.7
