Wtf? This is absolutly frikin crazy.. Do they really still believe in witches? This is so 400 years ago.

They believe she killed a young boy with sorcery,so they strip her naked, torture her with a branding iron,and set her on fire

An accused witch burned alive in Papua New Guinea was tortured at the hands of a vicious mob that believed she killed a young boy with sorcery. Hundreds of townspeople from Mount Hagen stood by and watched as Kepari Leniata, the accused witch, was burned alive after being stripped naked, tortured with a branding iron, tied up, splashed with fuel and set on fire on a mound of garbage and car tires. Efforts to save the accused witch as she burned alive were obstructed by the angry mob, and police and firefighters were unable to reach her in time. Officials on the small island nation expressed disgust and vowed justice.

Damn...That is insane and sad....


I really don't know much else to say on this one...


Just.... I know some areas of the world are still living in the past and pulling things like this, but it really does boggle my mind.

Just...Awful.

I read the article and those people and what they do is vile, wrong and disgusting!

I didn't think things like this still went on in the world; but sadly they do.

It is almost as if the vile cannibals and people that burn (supposed) witches; have just walked into this dimension through a doorway from hell.

I am worried for the good people that do live there; they must be so scared.

Well, how many people on this site believe in ghosts and demons and the occult?

Why are you so surprised that people still do this?

In the first burning picture the lady is clearly clothed. Shoes, pants, shirt. Just my observation!
