From BBC World News, London, UK

Three traditional healers in northern Tanzania have been arrested for defying a government ban issued last month.
It was meant to stop killings of people with albinism for ritual medicine.

Their arrest follows charges against a pastor, who was allegedly found in south-western Tanzania in possession of the body parts of an albino.

The BBC's Vicky Ntetema in Dar es Salaam says this case is blow to people with albinism, some of whom have been seeking refugee in churches.
