In Tanzania, I suppose it's generally accepted to kill people who are albino? This comes as a complete shock to me. What is the deal with this? What kind of culture has created this type of ignorance? I don't understand...In a world where scientific thinking is the norm, how can this happen?

Link to Reuters article

Tanzania's President Jakaya Kikwete has condemned witchdoctors who kill albinos and harvest their body parts in the hope it will bring prosperity.

He said 19 albinos had been murdered since March 2007, and another two were missing presumed dead in the east African country.
