Family of Albinos in Tanzania were dismembered so their limbs could be used for traditional withcraft

"I saw something on National Geographic a while ago about the murders of albinos in Tanzania. There was one case of a family with two albino sisters, one of which had her arms and legs hacked off in the middle of the night for sale on the black market. The other albino laid next to her sister for the remainder of the night as she bled to death (they live in a very secluded hut with no electricity). Albino limbs are reportedly worth a lot in certain parts of Africa for use in traditional witchcraft."
