One of the nuns who reported an organ trafficking network in Mozambique recently was found dead on Friday. Sister Doraci Edinger of the Servants of Mary Immaculate was apparently beaten and strangled in her home in th northern city of Nampula. Earlier this month the sisters had given interviews in which they said they were convinced Nampula was at the centre of an international ring selling children's body parts for use in magic rituals in several African countries. In their report they said there have been several attempts to abduct children from their orphanage. They also spoke of children who had escaped traffickers and showed pictures of children who had been killed and had organs removed. The sisters said they had received death threats since their report. Last Tuesday, the authorities in Mozambique announced that they had found no evidence of a trade in human organs.
