Child sacrifice in Uganda

Ugandan children are disappearing, victims of human sacrifice. The belief that burying a child's body parts will make you rich is being promoted by some traditional healers, known locally as witch doctors. Ugandan law enforcement officials say that parents have sold their children to the witch doctors for slaughter. If they can't find a child to buy, they will snatch one. One unfortunate child had his genitals cut off by a witch doctor who wanted them as a good luck charm to bury under a new house.
