Blantyre - Police in the southern African country of Malawi have arrested a priest for ordering 15 women to strip while he conducted "special prayers" for them, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.

The priest from the Bible Believers, one of several Pentecostal churches that have mushroomed in the country, was arrested in the central Salima district after one of the women filed a complaint, Moyenda Chitimbe said.

Chitimbe said the priest asked the women to disrobe while he conducted "special prayers," adding that the "women obliged and remained naked while the pastor gazed at their nudity."
