“2 British teens attacked with acid in Zanzibar return home for burn treatment”
“Two British teens who were victims of a brutal, unexplained acid attack on the East African island of Zanzibar are back home for medical treatment.
Katie Gee and Kirstie Trup, both 18 and from London, arrived on a medivac plane and were taken to the burn unit of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital by ambulance Friday…
The teens were splashed with acid on their faces, chests, back and hands by two men on a motorbike while walking through the historic capital Stone Town Wednesday night.
Three suspects were released but two have been detained for further questioning.
…one of the people held was a local shopkeeper who had been in an altercation with one of the girls a few days before the attack.
The teens were enjoying their last week on Zanzibar after volunteering as teachers at an orphanage.”
