Do they still have witch hunts/witch trials?

Are witches still hunted down, caught and punished for their sorcery?

    The last witch trial in Europe was in Switzerland, around the time of American independence.

    Donald Trump keeps going on a bout witch hunts. Strangely, those keep finding witches.

    Yes, but "witch hunts" are a bit different. The "witch" doesn't act like the type of witch that you're used to seeing in the movies where one is brewing over a cauldron, but rather indulging in practices that or not befitting to their religious beliefs. And I am talking about strict religious beliefs, and fearful superstitions because of those beliefs. The hunt isn't with pitchfork and torch, rather the activities and suspicions are put to trial with a community wide judgment and participation. Its not medival, but different.

    In many societies of Sub-Saharan Africa, the fear of witches drives periodic witch-hunts during which specialist witch-finders identify suspects, with death by mob often the result. Countries particularly affected by this phenomenon include South Africa, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Zambia.

    In Saudi Arabia they still have executions for witchcraft.  It's infrequent but they still do that.
