A disturbing video has emerged that shows four women being tortured by a gang of men after being accused of witchcraft. The footage was reportedly taken in a village in Papua New Guinea, a country where violence and murders linked to sorcery are rife.
In the video, the women have been stripped naked, tied up, burned and beaten. It also shows them being threatened with machetes while being questioned by the men.
The women were accused of witchcraft after a young man fell ill in the village in Enga province in August. According to social media posts, villagers claimed the women had ‘invisibly’ taken out the man’s heart.
