Albinos Murdered Again

Yet another Tanzanian albino has been murdered in his home. His wife was also injured in the attack, but survived.

Jovin Majaliwa was attacked and murdered by unknown assailants in his home Thursday night, just after dark. His left foot was severed and his genitals were mutilated. Witchdoctors are undoubtedly behind the murders, as they have been behind the string of others - 26, in all, just this year. Police waited to release the details of the grisly murder, in part because many are also customers of the witchdoctors'.

While nearly 200 witchdoctors have been arrested since March of this year, the police have no idea what happened to them. The BBC has secured evidence that the police are accessories to these continuing serial murders.

The body parts retrieved are used in rituals based on greed.
