Creepy Doings out in the Bush

According to the newspaper, some 5000 Christians protested in Ganta on Sunday. They're outraged at a series of ritual killings in the area perpetrated by practitioners of, I guess you could call them, traditional religions. We're really not qualified to write with any authority on the fascinating subject of Secret Societies in this part of the world, (they're secret!) but we're hoping to get an interview on the subject soon. There's a bibliography here. Our correspondent out in Gbarnga (three hours North of Monrovia) tells us that in the runup to the elections last year, a number of area residents were "sacrificed" so that some of the more, shall we say, connected candidates could...um, eat.
