London, Sept 16 (ANI): A gang of devil worshippers in Russia butchered four teenagers in a Satanic ritual - stabbing them 666 times each and eating them.
The teens, three girls and a boy aged 16 or 17, who are described as Goths, were roasted on a bonfire before being eaten.
Their private parts had also been cut off in the sickening ritual, the Sun.
Police found body parts dumped in a pit beside an upside-down cross, a symbol of Satanic worship, in a rural area of Russia.
Eight people have been arrested over the slayings.
Police believed the teenagers, who were all friends, were lured to a cottage and encouraged to get drunk before they were slain.
Each of the victims was stabbed 666 times, the sign of the devil then as part of a Satanic ritual, their limbs were cut off and their hearts ripped out.
The discovery in Yaroslavl, 480km from Moscow, has sent a shudder across Russia - where Satanists are feared to have committed a string of mutilations and killings.
The victims, who disappeared in June, were named as Anya Gorokhova, Olga Pukhova, Varya Kuzmina and Andrei Sorokin.

The rest of the cult were described by former teachers as being of low intelligence and moody.
Three were named by police as Ksenia Kuznetsova, Alexander Voronov and Anton Makovkin. (ANI)
