#Malawi - Hunted For Their Body Parts: Amnesty International

Published on 6 Jun 2016
A surge in killings of people with albinism, whose body parts are used in ritual practices, has exposed a systematic failure of policing in Malawi and left this vulnerable group living in fear, Amnesty International has revealed in a new report.

The report, “We are not animals to be hunted or sold”: Violence and discrimination against people with albinism in Malawi”, reveals how the wave of violent attacks against people with albinism has increased sharply over the last two years, with four people, including a baby, murdered in April 2016 alone.
