At least eight people have been arrested in Burundi in connection with a trade in human body parts from people with albinism

Those detained had fresh body parts in their possession, police say. Witchdoctors in the region tell clients that potions made with albino body parts will bring them luck in love, life and business. At least 10 albino people have been killed in Burundi in recent months and more than 40 in neighboring Tanzania.
