Plight of people with albinism remains dire in TanzaniaListen /
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on Thursday called for increased protection for people with albinism.
Navi Pillay's appeal came on the heels of a barbaric killing of a 40-year- old women with albinism from Tanzania.
These attacks, which are often motivated by the use of body parts for ritual purposes, have claimed the lives of at least 73 people with albinism in Tanzania since 2000.
The UN Human Rights Office has received reports of more than 200 cases of attacks against people with albinism in 15 countries between 2000 and 2013.
It's believed the actual number could be much higher.
Cecile Pouilly from UN Human Rights Office in Geneva spoke to Mamadou Alpha Diallo about Ms Lugata's murder.
