Peruvian shamans don't have good news for Europe in 2016. Gathering to perform a ritual at their end of year ceremony, shamans danced and played instruments to predict the year ahead. Blowing into an instrument that looks like a shell called a "pututu", they gathered around photographs of world leaders and forecasted more attacks to hit Europe in 2016. SOUNDBITE Peruvian Shaman Juan Osco, saying (English): "In France and in other countries in Europe we see there will be attacks. There will be attacks, wrongful, unnecessary deaths, but there will be." Shamans also predicted that Republican candidate Donald Trump will go up against the power of the people in his attempt to become the next American president. SOUNDBITE Peruvian Shaman Juan Osco, saying (English): "We see that statements of Donald Trump are controversial, he will be about to become an official candidate or maybe president but the people of the United States will join forces and he will not be elected." Prayers and predictions of the shamans have become highly regarded in their native Peru.
