Rise in faith-based child abuse

An increasing number of child abuse cases involving accusations of witchcraft and exorcism are being reported to the police. A Freedom of Information request to councils across the UK showed 31 children being accused of witchcraft or possession by spirits in 2014, compared with 21 in 2013 and ten in 2012. Project Violet, a Metropolitan Police faith-based abuse unit, recorded 46 incidents last year, more than double 2013, and 60 so far in 2015.
