PNG yet to overcome sorcery mindset

From , 5:03 am on 7 April 2017

Sorcery-related attacks and killings are said to be on the rise in Papua New Guinea.

Over 100 men charged with the killing of seven people - including two children - who they accused of practising sorcery will face trial in the north coast city of Madang this month.

But very few cases reach the courts, while in the Highlands region the problem is spiralling.
