PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — At least 45 people have been killed across Haiti due to accusations they are using “black magic” to spread cholera, the director of a Voodoo association said Friday.
Most of the killings are occurring in the coastal town of Jeremie, where people are being lynched, set on fire and attacked with machetes, said Max Beauvoir, a Voodoo priest. But he said killings also have been reported in Cap Haitien and the Central Plateau.
Local police did not return calls seeking comment on Beauvior’s numbers on Christmas Eve, though The Associated Press reported in early December that national police spokesman Frantz Lerebours said machete-wielding mobs had killed a dozen people accused of practicing witchcraft to spread cholera.
