Albinos in Tanzania: 'We're being killed like animals'

A new campaign launched in Tanzania aims to protect albino people after a rise in the number of them being murdered.

In the last three years over 70 albinos have been killed, but only ten convictions have been made.

There is a belief among some in Tanzania that the body parts of someone with albinism bring wealth.
