Since November 2014, eighteen people have been killed. In this April alone, four people were murdered, including a baby. Why the killing spree? Superstition. Some people in the region believe that the body parts of people with albinism contain supernatural, magical powers. The persistence of these beliefs, despite a nascent public eduction campaign, is having deadly consequences. This video released today from Amnesty International offers a raw look at the recent surge of violence and its consequences for people living with albinism.
