Acid Attacks Debut In UK

But this acid attack wasn't against a Muslimah who rejected a suitor. It was against a beautiful, young woman who refused to cover up.

A young woman was facially disfigured and almost lost her eyesight in a horrific unprovoked acid attack on the streets of London.

Naomi Oni, 20, was on her way home from work when an unknown attacker dressed in a niqab threw a chemical substance at her leaving the retail assistant with severe burns on her head, neck, arms, legs and body.

These shocking images have now been released by Ms Oni in an appeal for help to catch the attacker whose identity was concealed behind the Muslim women's dress which completely covers the face apart from the eyes.

Ms Oni, who is employed by Victoria's Secret at the Westfield Stratford shopping centre, was five minutes from home in Dagenham, east London when she was attacked on December 30.

Police have no leads. To investigate the obvious would be "Islamophobic." But I can take a wild guess.
