LA PAZ, Bolivia - Satu majlis bagi menghormati tengkorak diadakan di sini kelmarin oleh sekumpulan penganut agama Kristian Katolik.

Kira-kira 300 tengkorak diarak ke sebuah gereja kecil di tanah perkuburan di sini. Sekumpulan penganut itu mendakwa tengkorak tersebut mempunyai kuasa ajaib.

Bolivians who keep close relatives' skulls at home as a macabre talisman flock to the cemetery chapel once a year to have the craniums blessed and to bring themselves good luck in the future.
Tengkorak tersebut dipercayai boleh menolong mereka mendapatkan pekerjaan dan membantu pasukan bola sepak yang diminati memperoleh kemenangan.

Lima tahun lalu, seorang ketua biskop Kristian Katolik di negara ini pernah mengutuk majlis itu kerana ia dianggap bertentangan dengan agama tersebut. - AP
