Congo Arrests... Penis Snatching/Shrinking Voodoo Sorcerors

There ought to be a law:

Police in Congo have arrested suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink menís private parts.

There has been a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.

...

Rumours of the bizarre theft began circulating last week in the capital Kinshasa. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings, who were blamed for the devastating curse.

Purported victims, 14 of whom were detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear.

...

Police arrested the accused sorcerers and their victims in an effort to avoid the sort of bloodshed seen in Ghana a decade ago, when 12 suspected penis-snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs.

ďIím tempted to say itís one huge joke,Ē Mr Oleko said. ďBut when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that itís become tiny or that theyíve become impotent. To that I tell them, 'How do you know if you havenít gone home and tried ití,Ē he said.

...

ďItís real. Just yesterday here, there was a man who was a victim. We saw. What was left was tiny,Ē said 29-year-old Alain Kalala.

I still like my "global warming" excuse better.

Thanks to a lot of people, most recently Kevin.
