An infamous cult leader known as 'Black Jesus', who was suspected of cannibalism, has reportedly been chopped to death in a Papua New Guinea village.

Steven Tari, a convicted rapist, had been on the run since escaping from a prison in the Pacific nation during a mass break-out in March.

Police chief Sylvester Kalaut said that Tari and one of his followers were killed at a village about 12 miles outside Madang on Thursday as they were attacking a young woman.
