Colombia Taking Aim at Witchcraft, Sportscasters

United Press International

Colombian witches will have to stop teaching their craft over the radio.

Communications Minister Noemi Sanin Posada said Thursday she will take steps against 11 radio stations that are ignoring her warnings against transmitting programs with magicians, sorcerers and fortunetellers.

The minister said her office is also investigating the style of various radio sportscasters, because their emotional descriptions of sports like soccer apparently incite aggression and violence in their listeners.
