Indonesia considers ban on witchcraft

Witch doctors oppose law that could see them jailed, saying magic is part of country’s culture.

People accused of practising black magic in Indonesia could be jailed for five years if a revised criminal code is accepted by parliament.

However, there is a lot of resistance to the proposed new law, as witchcraft is big business in the country.
