Human body parts dumped in Tanzania

DAR ER SALAAM - Eight people from a Tanzanian medical institute have been arrested after 85 bags containing body parts were found in the port city of Dar es Salaam.

A police officer told the BBC that human limbs, fingers, ribs and skulls were in the bags, discovered in a landfill site in the Bunju suburb.

Some of the bags contained surgical instruments and used disposable gloves.

The BBC's Aboubakar Famau in Dar es Salaam says the find has shocked the usually quiet city.

Dar es Salaam police chief Suleiman Kova said those arrested have links to the city's Institute of Medical and Training University (IMTU).

Residents said they became suspicious after a truck repeatedly dumped black plastic bags weighing approximately 25kg (55lb) each.

    Zvirikuitika munyka imharidzo yekupera kwenguva. Human life has suddenly become cheap. The value our fathers place on humans does not seem to be the same today. It seems indeed like the time of Noah just before the flood. Lamech said to his wives: "Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, hearken to what I say: I have slain a man for wounding me, a young man for striking me. (Gen 4:23 RSV) Ndiyo nguva yekutendeuka yatiri iyi.
