Julianna Gene and Kopaku Konia were dragged from their homes in Koge, Papua New Guinea. Hung from trees. And tortured. In front of their entire village.

The women were accused of being witches, and killing a man.

According to the Independent,

A shocking increase in witch-hunt deaths in Papua New Guinea has prompted the government to launch a parliamentary commission of inquiry with a view to toughening the law.
