According to scripture, the two witnesses are given power to torment them that dwell on the earth. They are given powers to;
To turn the waters into blood
To shut up the heavens so that is does not rain
To smite the earth with plagues... These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. - (Rev 11:6)
And when these two witnesses are killed, the peoples and kindreds and tongues and nations will rejoice and not even give them a burial.... And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. - (Rev 11:9-10)

I believe the Two Witnesses should not be thought of as "people" but instead as Heavenly Bodies. There are other prophesies of this nature which calls them The Twins. In Hopi prophesy the "Twins" are the Red and Blue Star Kachina.
"first there is purification time..and then renewal time"
"Turn the waters to blood..." to me this passage is indicative of iron oxide which is Red.
"To smite the earth with plagues"

"A widespread affliction or calamity, especially one seen as divine retribution."
"For three and a half days some from the peoples and tribes and languages and nations will gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb," Revelation 11:9
I believe this passage is indicative of massive amount of people who will die in this event. So many that they are left unburied and allowed to rot and decay.
This could also represent senselessness. When the Egyptians described The Destroyer in the Kolbrin Bible, they say people dashed about crazed, delirious, zombie like after the Destroyer passes.
The Kolbin Bible (Egyptian Great Book)
CRT:3:3 Men, stricken with terror, went mad at the awful sight in the Heavens. They were loosed from their senses and dashed about, crazed, not knowing what they did The breath was sucked from their bodies, and they were burnt with a strange ash.
CRT:3:8 Men and their dwelling places were gone; only sky-boulders and red earth remained where once they were, but amidst all of the desolation, a few survived, for man is not easily destroyed. They crept out of caves and came down from the mountainsides. Their eyes were wild, and their limbs trembled; their bodies' shook, and their tongues lacked control. Their faces were twisted, and the skin hung loose on their bones. They were as maddened wild beasts driven into an enclosure before flames; they knew no law, being deprived of all the wisdom they once had, and those who guided them were gone.
The "Red Kachina" (The Destroyer) is know by many different names the world over. Despite being separated by space and time, separate ancient cultures described a very similar event which happened in OUR past. This "Event" is cyclical in nature and our ancient ancestors knew this thing would in a word...Return. That we would have a Second Coming. A second coming of the "Son(Sun) of Man" or Messiah."Messiahs appear in many religions including Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam."

The Bible and the Koran both describe a similar end time scenario which in the Koran, says The Sun with RISE in the WEST as THE indicator.
The Hopi alluded to this same phenomena of the Earth "Changing it's rotation" from clockwise(now) to counter clockwise which they claim in the "Correct" rotation. This would cause the Sun to Rise in the West. The Egyptians as well claimed the sun use to rise in the West and it changed during a huge catastrophe which caused the Bronze Age Collapse.
The Bronze Age collapse:
The Bronze Age collapse is a transition in southwestern Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean from the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age that some historians believe was violent, sudden and culturally disruptive.
Cultural collapse of the Mycenaean kingdoms
, the Hittite Empire
, Egyptian Empire
in Syria and Canaan interrupted trade routes and severely reduced literacy. In the first phase of this period, almost every city between Troy and Gaza was violently destroyed, and often left unoccupied thereafter: examples include Hattusa, Mycenae, Ugarit.
