    PNG sorcery murders - but witch Doctor did it?


    PNG continues to grapple with attacks against people accused of sorcery


    Eight sentenced to death, 88 get life in prison over PNG sorcery murders

    Eight men have been sentenced to death in Papua New Guinea for their involvement in the brutal killing of seven people,
    including two children, who they thought were conducting sorcery.


    Key points:
    • Group of 97 were found guilty of murdering seven people
    • Community concern over use of death penalty
    • PNG is struggling to deal with continuing cases of sorcery-related violence


    The men were among 97 found guilty in February of murdering five men and two boys, aged three and five, by slashing them
    with machetes.
    They were part of a group of about 180 men and youths who had marched to a nearby village in PNG's Madang Province,
    searching for people they claimed had committed sorcery.

    Of the remaining 89 men, one died recently while the other 88 were sentenced to life in prison.

    Indeed....only one step removed from all that other silly magical thinking, like a virgin birth, or a Holy Spirit, or a resurrection from the dead, or a wafer being Christ's body, or......
