They Can't Be THAT Annoying!

Zambia's relationship with witchraft has long fascinated me. I've blogged about witchcraft before, as well as a Zambian exorcism I participated in myself.

However, there seems to be a recent trend in the country concerning the killing of suspected witches, particularly those "witches" who are elderly.

It seems it's happened again: according to Xinhua News Agency, three Zambian men between 45 and 60 years old have been shot dead by unknown gunmen in separate incidents in Nakonde district, Northern Province, for suspected witchcraft.
