When they first capture a person for ransom they first pierce his legs with iron wire, and bind them together as fish are hung on a string. When they returned to their bandit dens, the captives were interrogated and were pricked with sickles to make them tell of hidden property they possessed. If there was the slightest hesitation in answering, they were immediately cut in two at the waist – as a warning to others. Then they compelled the villagers to disclose where was hidden the little store of grain with which they were trying to eke out an existence. This they carried off, leaving the victims to starve. If any of the adults tried to escape the whole family was slaughtered…

In many cases there will be found only 8 or 10 houses left standing in towns that had 400 to 450 just the year before. What has become of the families, no man can tell.
