Gabon: Thousands march against ritual killings
The Associated Press
The president of the Association for the Fight against Ritual Crimes, Elvis Ebang Ondo, estimates that Gabon has 20 mutilation killings a year. He said there are more such killings in election years, as some people seek amulets to win government positions.
The marchers presented a declaration to President Ali Bongo Ondimba, urging him to fight the crime.
Police dispersed a separate march by a group opposed to the participation of the first lady.
