Papua New Guinea: Elderly women beheaded as ‘sorcerers’

April 8, 2013

TWO elderly women were beheaded in Papua New Guinea after being tortured for three days in the latest in a string of sorcery-related crimes.

The Post-Courier newspaper said police were present during the killings last week but were outnumbered by an angry mob and could do nothing to prevent the grisly deaths…

The killings come just days after another report that six women accused of sorcery were tortured with hot irons in an Easter “sacrifice” in the Southern Highlands.

Er — that’s why the police are a national force, so there can always be enough of them there when they’re needed.
