People With Albinism March to Demand Malawi Govt Protection

Police in Lilongwe blocked a protest march by the Association of People with Albinism from reaching Kamuzu Palace, official residence of President Peter Mutharika. The protesters were demanding that the government step up protection for people with albinism. The march cames amid fears that people with albinism could be at increased risk ahead of elections in May as candidates seek out "lucky charms" to boost their chances of victory.
