The boy of a 17-year-old boy with albinism has been found with his brain missing after he was brutally murdered in Mozambique.

A local resident in Tete in western Mozambique, who asked to remain anonymous, told the BBC that the teenager's parents started searching for him when he didn't return home.

His body was found with bones from his arms and legs missing and his head split open. His brain had been taken, the resident added.

The spokesperson for the Tete Provincial Police Command Lurdes Ferreira said the police would begin investigations at the scene of the crime.

This is the latest in a series of crimes against people with albinism whose body parts are used in rituals.
