Witch’s child sacrifice foiled

MONROVIA: A Liberian woman has been arrested after dumping her 2-year-old child in a well in the capital.

The 39-year-old woman, who claims to be a witch, said she threw her son into the well as a gift to members of a witch cult to which she belonged. The child was saved from drowning by neighbours.

The woman said she and other cult members had eaten other members’ children over the years and that it was now her turn to sacrifice her child.
