The police in Tanzania has heard how a man broke into a house and chopped off the arm of a sleeping 6-year-old Albino child with the aim of using it for witchcraft.

The boy, Baraka Cosmas, according to his mother, was sleeping in her room when the assailant broke into the room and hacked off his right hand.

In what has become a regular feature of discrimination against Albinos in the country, the recent attack is one of a series of attacks against Albino minorities in the country.
