Editorial Reviews

Imagine being hunted down by another human because your body is thought to possess magical powers that people want to bottle? It is the gruesome reality for people with albinism living in Tanzania, Africa. Albinism, a medical condition where the body produces little or no pigment, exists everywhere, in every ethnic group in the world. Here in the United States albinos, as they are commonly called, aren't facing the shocking attacks of those in Africa, but often face ridicule, prejudice and exclusion.

"20/20" travels to Tanzania, Africa where those with albinism are being hacked and killed so that witch doctors can use their body parts in potions. Over 54 people with albinism have been killed in the last two years, their body parts sold for thousands of dollars to witch doctors. UNICEF has called the practice a ''heinous human rights violation.'' We report on the lucrative underground trade, because of the belief held by some that a potion containing albino bones will bring luck and great wealth.

We also meet with several people in the United States living with the condition.
