6 Year-Old Albino Girl Killed For Body Parts In Burundi

Witchdocters wanted her body parts for potions.
BBC reported:

A six-year-old albino girl in Burundi has been found dead with her head and limbs removed, in the latest killing linked to ritual medicine.

Albinos in the region have been targeted because of a belief peddled by witchdoctors that their body parts can be used for magic potions.

The girl, who was attacked on Sunday, was the sixth person with albinism to be killed in Burundi since September.

There have also been a number of attacks in neighbouring Tanzania.

Since last year, 30 albinos have been killed in Tanzania and four in Burundi.
