A couple from the Congo have been found guilty of torturing to death a 15 year old boy they believed to be a witch. Using various household implements, they beat him to death over a period of days and forced two other children to partake in the violence. Quite apart from their insane belief in superstition, the couple are clearly intellectually subnormal anyway given that they failed to see the inherent contradiction in being able to easily torture to death someone they believed to possess supernatural powers. But then, since when do the religious and the superstitious deploy logic in their perverse beliefs?
