PNG police about to arrest ‘witch’ murderers

PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea: Papua New Guinea police say they are about to make their first arrests almost a week after a mob stripped, tortured and bound a woman accused of witchcraft, then burned her alive in front of hundreds of horrified people in the South Pacific nation’s third largest city.
More than 50 members of the mob doused the 20-year-old mother with gasoline and then set her alight on a pile of car tires and trash in Mount Hagen last Wednesday. She had been accused of sorcery by relatives of a 6-year-old boy who had died in the local hospital the previous day.
Police spokesman Dominic Kakas on Tuesday said suspects had been identified through witness interviews. He said there will be as many as 50 arrests on charges of murder by Wednesday.

Death defying ‘stunt’ lands Saudi man in police custody

DUBAI: A shocking video has been released on social media of a man who jumps from the roof of a car into the path of an articulated lorry in what appears to be a death defying stunt.
Without any consideration for the safety for himself or other motorists, the man can be seen dancing on the car which is parked on the side of the road, in the background the vast lorry can be seen approaching.
At the last moment the man is seen jumping onto the floor causing the lorry to swerve violently to avoid hitting him.
The man has now been arrested by the General Directorate of Traffic – according to UAE daily Gulf News – on charges of endangering the lives of other road users.
