Panama killer cult: 7 hacked in religious ritual

Jan 19, 2020 10:23 IST

Preachers from a cult in Panama have been accused of kidnapping, torturing and killing members of a remote indigenous community in a gory religious ritual. Seven people were killed in a bizarre religious ritual near Panama's Caribbean coast. The residents were rounded up by about 10 preachers and tortured, beaten, burned and hacked with machetes to make them "repent their sins,” authorities said. Police freed 14 members of an indigenous group who had been tied up and beaten with wooden cudgels and Bibles.
