Acid attacks in the 21st century are part and parcel of living in a big diverse city such as London.




BBC:

A 14-year-old has been arrested over an acid attack which left a delivery driver “fighting for his life”.

The 32-year-old could lose his sight after a substance was repeatedly thrown in his face in Walthamstow on Thursday evening, police said.

In a separate attack in Tottenham about 30 minutes later, another delivery driver, also 32, had a corrosive substance thrown at him.
