I really didn’t know what to make of this but it seemed interesting (?) so I figured I would just share it.

An accused witch who was tortured with red  hot irons and a pair of pliers told police she escaped from the clutches of  several of her attackers by fighting back and eating their hearts.

Police in Papua New Guinea are still  investigating the claims of the woman who, witnesses said, appeared to show no  pain despite the torture she had endured.

Accused by villagers of earlier killing a  child and eating the youngster’s heart, the middle aged woman was hunted down,  stripped – and the torture began.

Red hot iron rods were applied all over her  body, she was stabbed in the chest and her left ear was snipped off with a pair  of pliers.

Witnesses who watched the torture said the  woman had also lost a tooth – but during the attack she shouted at the gang that  she had killed several of their friends and eaten their hearts after they tried  to assault her.

One witness told the Post Courier newspaper  that while the naked woman was being tortured she showed no signs of being in  pain – even when the hot rods were placed against her flesh.

‘People who saw this were stunned,’  the  witness told the newspaper. The observer also said the woman had  told her  attackers the names of the people she had killed and butchered.

The incensed crowd were about to burn the  woman to death – a punishment that has been handed out to other suspected  sorcerers in Papua New Guinea – when police arrived and saved her from her  fate.

The incident occurred less than a month after  a deranged father killed his young daughter in another part of the country and  drank her blood from a hideous wound he inflicted in her neck with a  machete.

Sorcery is widespread in remote villages in  the country and the government has recently introduced tough new laws to deal  with it.

But officials have admitted that stamping out  the practice is likely to take years.
