TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY JEAN-MARC MOJON Nine-year-old Amani sits on January 25, 2009 in a recreational hall at the Mitindo Primary School for the blind, where he enrolled following the murder of a sibling, five-year-old Mariam Emmanuel, an albino who was murdered and mutilated in February 2008. Mariam was the youngest victim of a string of murders which has left 43 albinos dead in a year, not counting the newborns killed by their own parents. According to local residents, witch doctors use albino organs and bones in concoctions to divine for diamonds in the soil, while fishermen have been known to weave albino hair into their nets hoping for a big catch on Lake Victoria.
