BBC reports:

A court in north-western Tanzania has sentenced three men to death by hanging for killing a 14-year-old albino boy.

They were found guilty of attacking Matatizo Dunia and severing his legs in Bukombe district in Shinyanga province.

In the past two years there has been a huge rise in murders of albino people. Witchdoctors use their body parts in potions they claim bring prosperity.

Dozens of people have been arrested, but the justice system is notoriously slow and this is the first conviction.

How I hate witchdoctors. The whole bunch of them disgust me like nothing else. The world of science and universal culture can salvage nothing from their beliefs and practices. They are a cultural zero.
