Albinos killed and mutilated in Africa and body parts used for witchcraft

Reality of albino in Tanzania and some other countries in Africa.

A gang murdered and mutilated a 10-year-old albino girl in Tanzania – because they wanted to sell her body parts to witch doctors.

Albino body parts – A hot demand in Burundi. A man and a teenage girl who were killed in Burundi were reportedly found dead with their legs and arms missing. Police also confirmed that the tip of the girl’s tongue was also removed.

Many people in Tanzania — and across Africa, for that matter — believe albinos have magical powers. They stand out, often the lone white face in a black crowd, a result of a genetic condition that impairs normal skin pigmentation and strikes about one in 3,000 people here. Tanzanian officials say witch doctors are now marketing albino skin, bones and hair as ingredients in potions that are promised to make people rich.
