UN officials propose GPS tracking on albino children

Kenya Chief Justice David Maraga with UN Independent expert on the rights of persons with albinism Ikponwosa Ero on Monday

UN officials will this week consider whether to offer GPS tracking to albino children.

The proposal is to be tabled at a special forum on albinism being hosted in Tanzania.

Campaigners hope it could lead to more protection for albinos, who are frequently targeted for their body parts.
