Woman Accused Of Being A Witch Is Burned Alive In Papua New Guinea
World

Papua New Guinea has officially become the first principality of the middle east as a 20-year-old woman was burned alive after she was accused of using witchcraft to kill her neighbor’s son.

Kepari Leniata’s six-year-old neighbor mysteriously fell ill on Tuesday morning and was taken to a hospital where he died hours later.

Some of the boy’s relatives believed that the unexpected death could only be caused by witchcraft so they asked two women who admitted to practicing sorcery if they were involved.

Once they gave the word that it was Kepari who was responsible, the boy’s family broke into her home and dragged her outside to be tortured and killed.

Leniata was stripped naked and burned with a hot iron before being taken to a local dump and thrown into a pile of burning tires. Police and a fire truck were called to the scene but she was already dead by the time they got through the mob of villagers at the scene.

Many people apparently still believe in and practice witchcraft in this primal country. They’ve probably got giant gorillas waiting in their forests and dinosaurs swimming in their nearby seas, too.
