Mysterious North Sentinel Island is home to uncontacted tribe that KILLS outsiders

It is a criminal offence to try and make contact with the Sentinelese tribe, who have lived in India’s Andaman islands for 60,000 years

It may look like paradise – but be warned, because all is not as it seems on the mysterious North Sentinel Island.

Located in the Indian Ocean, it is about the size of Manhattan and has been inhabited by the indigenous Sentinelese people for 60,000 years.

The tribe have had little contact with the modern world and are violent to outsiders – killing American tourist John Chau when he visited North Sentinel Island in November 2018.
