POLICE in northern Spain saved a young woman from a fanatical religious cult after her neighbours alerted them to her “blood-curdling” screams.
Thought to be from South America, the woman was undergoing an exorcism in Oviedo at the time and taken to hospital in a “state of great mental anguish”.
She wasn’t physically harmed and no charges have been pressed against the priest cum shaman and the group of young acolytes in attendance.
A representative from Oviedo cathedral denied it was sanctioned by the Catholic church and suggested it was “some sort of cult ritual, faith healing or voodoo”.
There are, however, at least 15 priests in Spain with official authorisation to conduct exorcisms and even an elite exorcist unit in Madrid.
