97 Convicted of Sorcery-Related Murders

An astounding 97 people in Papa New Guinea were found guilty of murder  in a mass trial resulting from a jaw-dropping 2014 rampage.

The incident in question saw a whopping 189 men don war paint and trek  over six miles to a village that they believed was home to sorcerers.

Upon arriving, the mob destroyed parts of the village and murdered seven people in gruesome fashion.

In a testament to how seriously sorcery is seen in the country,  suspicion of such activity was actually an allowable legal defense for  murder up until just the year before the attack took place.

More on this unsettling story, including how its symptomatic of a sorcery hysteria gripping Papa New Guinea, at the Coast to Coast AM website.
