According to the Economist (January 17, 2009), in Tanzania, albinos are being killed so that their body parts can be sold to witch doctors who use the parts in their potions. The police have responded by giving albinos cell phones that have a direct line to the police. If an albino thinks he or she is being tracked by the body part harvesters, they can use the phones to text their location to the police.

Good day,

I could at best will not imagine that you are killing albinos?
Are you talking of real people?

Please explain to me what I have to think about this short article.
Either I do not understand if it was a joke or do I not understand the seriousness of the situation!

Please tell me!!!

Thank you very much
