BBC NEWS | Africa | Congo child sorcery abuse on riseDesperation, nepotism, lack of viable leadership, and poverty, have a tendency to lead to fanaticism, lunacy and inquisition... in Congo it's proven again, like in nth century Spain, and 21st century Middle East before. Do humans ever learn?
"A report has highlighted what it calls an alarming rise in the abuse of boys and girls accused of sorcery in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Such children are physically abused and end up on the streets of the capital, Kinshasa, Human Rights Watch says.
The organisation has been examining the plight of children in the country."
