Seven people caught trafficking human bones in Nsanje District of Southern Malawi, South East Africa, were caught by a mob and brutally beaten and then set on fire.
According to those who witnessed the lynching, the men had in their possession the bones and body parts of albinos, which are believed to have magical properties and are used in rituals for everything ranging from love to money and good luck. Apparently, the bones of albinos can fetch a high price on the black market. Authorities have not yet made any arrests nor have they officially confirmed that human bones were found among the possessions of the victims.
There has recently been a rise in the murders of people with albinism, with their body parts being sold for witchcraft. The trafficking of human body parts is illegal in Malwai and it looks like the locals take it pretty damn seriously. Hard to believe this sort of thing still goes on but…wait, do whites count as albinos?
Mad props to @african-angel.
