Accused Witch Burned Alive In Papua New Guinea
Assailants stripped, tortured and bound a woman accused of witchcraft, then burned her alive in front of hundreds of witnesses in a Papua New Guinea town, police said Friday after one of the highest profile sorcery-related murders in this South Pacific island nation.

Kepari Leniata, a 20-year-old who had a child, had been accused of sorcery by relatives of a 6-year-old boy who died in the hospital the day before, police spokesman Dominic Kakas said.

She was tortured with a hot iron rod, bound, doused in gasoline, then set alight on a pile of car tires and trash in the Western Highlands provincial capital of Mount Hagen, Kakas said.

Sorcery has traditionally been countered by sorcery in Papuan New Guinean culture. But responses to sorcery allegations have become increasingly violent in recent years.

This is ridiculous. I know Papua New Guinea is underdeveloped, but burning women alive for supposed witchcraft? And here I thought this was 2013. It's like Salem all over again. But this time I'm assuming they don't have ergotism. ( [link to en.wikipedia.org]

There are plenty of diseases the boy could have died of that are in no way related to witchcraft. At lease the government doesn't approve of the crime, so that's good, but still, it's pretty disturbing...

Re: Accused Witch Burned Alive In Papua New Guinea
I have relatives who are missionaries in PNG. There are plenty of natives who believe in sorcery. If a woman gives birth to twins, the natives are supposed to kill one or both (can't recall exactly) of the babies because it is bad luck to have twins. And that's just one of many stories I've heard from over there.

You can thank religions and superstitions for this crime. We need to shelve religion and focus on spiritual development. Not ritualistic religions.

This is prime example of hiding behind a religion to push control.

I know! And she had a child of her own. That poor kid will grow up without a mother now, all because the town folk couldn't keep their superstitious madness to themselves.
