Four Women saved from Witch killing in PNG

Four women in Papua New Guinea accused of witchcraft have been saved by police and missionaries after a visit by the group changed the mindsets of the people in Enga. The women had been accused of practising sorcery after a measles epidemic killed several people in the remote Hewa language speaking area of Enga province last year, and were in danger of being murdered. But an expedition into the area by missionaries and police at the weekend has led local people to renounce such violence. Enga province police deputy commander Epenes Nili was part of the expedition, and he explained that the visiting group spoke out against the practices of witch craft but also pointed out the evil that was also shown in killing alleged persons who practice witchcraft.
