Tanzanian Sentenced to Hang for Killing Albino Child, News Says

A Tanzanian man was sentenced to death by hanging for murdering a 5-year-old albino child whose body was discovered in 2008 with the legs cut off and drained of blood, the Daily News reported, citing a high court ruling.

Kazimiri Mashauri, 50, was sentenced to death to show that the East African nation won’t tolerate the ritual murder of people with albinism, the Dar es Salaam-based newspaper said, citing Judge Projest Rugazia.
