Police save 'sorcerers' after mob try to burn them alive in Papua New Guinea

Two women accused of being sorcerers have been saved by police after they were about to be set alight by a mob in the Pacific state of Papua New Guinea.

The women were accused of killing an eight-year-old girl in Mount Hagen, the same city where a crowd burnt a 20-year-old mother last week after stripping her naked and beating her in a killing that shocked the world.

A police commander, Teddy Tei, said an angry crowd claimed two elderly women had killed the eight-year-old, but that police believed she had been “gang-raped and killed by two known suspects”.

The suspects were among the crowd attacking the women, who were tied to poles and about to be burnt. Also present was a “glassman” – a man who claimed to have supernatural powers and who had identified the luckless women as sorcerers and claimed they were responsible for the child’s death.

About 20 people were arrested.

The incident follows the killing two weeks ago of Kepari Leniata, 20, who was reportedly tortured with a branding iron and tied up, doused with fuel and burnt on a pile of rubbish topped with car tyres, while a crowd including children looked on. She was accused of using sorcery to kill a six-year-old boy.

    Primitive pagans in New Guinea believe in witches….primitive progressives in America believe in Global Warming. Both result in pverty and dead bodies.

    By definition isnt a “Glassman” a sorcerer?

    “…a man who claimed to have supernatural powers…”

    I wonder if this model of cultural diversity was in the US, would the libtards defend them so as to allow them to burn witches and sorcerers? Remember, diversity is more important that laws and common sense!

    Can I get me an A-MEN?! (Or whatever it is that devil-worshiping satanists say in praise to their false deity. Oh, wait! I know! Yeaaaaa, DARWIN!

    So they built the bonfire out of garbage or did they just skip a step and set their local dump on fire?
