The President of Tanzania Jakaya Kiwete has promised to end the killing and mutilation of albinos, which he says is bringing shame on the country. Mr. Kiwete said the false belief that their body parts bring good luck was fueling the murders. Albino body parts which are believed to bring luck in business, politics and love, sell for hundreds of dollars in Tanzania. Campaigners say more than 70 albinos have been killed in Tanzania in the past few years. World News from the BBC.

mutilation n. 毁损;残缺;切断

albino n. [皮肤] 白化病者;[遗] 白化体;白化现象
n. (Albino)人名;(西)阿尔维诺;(阿拉伯)阿勒比努;(葡、意、英)阿尔比诺


坦桑尼亚总统贾卡亚·基奎特承诺将终止对白化病人的屠杀和截肢行为,他表示,整个国家已因此蒙羞。基奎特称,白化病人肢体能够带来好运的荒谬想法助长了对白化病人的杀戮行为。在坦桑尼亚,人们认为白化病人肢体能为商业、政治和爱情带来好运,售价竟高达数百美元。抗议者称,过去几年间坦桑尼亚有70多位白化病人惨遭杀害。BBC世界新闻。
