PGR closes prison cells in the Maputo Police command - Mozambique
A one-year-old albino boy was abducted by strangers last week from the village of Maico, Mecanhelas district, Niassa, Radio Mozambique reported yesterday.
The abduction happened in the night, as the child was sleeping next to his mother on the balcony of their home.
Mozambican police spokesman in Niassa, Alves Mathe, said that the police detained an individual who had harboured the kidnappers in connection with the incident.
Mathe said cases of albino abduction were frequent in Mecanhelas because the region borders Malawi.
“This rumour that circulates there, that one has to kill another person to get rich, is not true. The individuals who commit these crimes take refuge in neighbouring Malawi,” he said.Source: Notícias
