A woman accused of witchcraft is burned alive in this file photo.A teenage girl beheaded her father with a bush knife after he raped her at their home in Papua New Guinea, a report said yesterday, with community leaders protecting her, saying the man deserved to die.
The Post-Courier newspaper said the 18-year-old chopped her father’s head clean off after he repeatedly raped her last week in their village. The report cited a pastor as saying the father had three other children and raped his daughter when they were alone in the house.
Violent crime, as well as witchcraft, is rife in Papua New Guinea with the government last month voting to revive the death penalty in a bid to deter offenders after a series of high-profile grisly incidents.
