A total of 29 people have been accused of murdering 7 'sorcerers' and making soup from their organs.

Independent said:

Armed with home-made guns fashioned from rubber, and long-bladed knives they consider to be "possessed", the accused have allegedly killed four men and three women in isolated jungle territory since April. Four were murdered last week.

Wow, hope they dont make soup out of mine!

Takes all sorts, but why so they still think sorcerers are real? and why did they make soup and eat it?
surely, would have been easier to make a roll?

Guess ill never understand it.

Thanks OP.

From the article ..

Quote

     "They don't think they've done anything wrong; they admit what they've done openly," said the police commander of Madang province, Anthony Wagambie. Cult members reportedly wanted to weed out witchdoctors who charged excessive sums for services such as casting out evil spirits. By eating their victims' organs, they believed they would themselves gain supernatural powers               

Weird and sick...But I have heard of this sort of thing before.. Only with child sex molesters.. a group of them   ( I cannot recall the exact story )  believed if they had sex with little children.. it gave them super powers..    The things some mad people will believe and do is just twisted...  I would say these people from the OP article, would need help, but then again how can anyone help them?
