Albinos, Long Shunned, Face Threat in Tanzania

Date: June 8, 2008
Author: Jeffrey Gettleman
QUOTE: Discrimination against albinos is a serious problem throughout sub-Saharan Africa, but recently in Tanzania it has taken a wicked twist: at least 19 albinos, including children, have been killed and mutilated in the past year, victims of what Tanzanian officials say is a growing criminal trade in albino body parts.

Jeffrey, you did a big favor to us sharing this with us back in 2008. If you hadn't done that, I would have still be doing the paper writing services reviews back then and I didn't want that. Cheers for sharing this.
