Albinos In Tanzania Being Hunted For Their Body Parts For Witchcraft (VIDEO)

The United Nations has a horrifying video report about how albinos in Tanzania are being hunted in order to harvest their body parts. Albinos there have long suffered discrimination, but their lives are filled with new terrors as rumors fly that they have magical powers. One woman lost both her arms in an attack, and many others have been similarly maimed. Some believe that their body parts can be used for witchcraft and in magical potions.

One Canadian businessman, an albino himself, is doing all he can to stop the horror.
