August 8, 2013 Zanzibar – Africa (CNN) Two British teenage girls have been attacked with acid on the Tanzanian tourist island of Zanzibar.
The two 18-year-old aid workers from Manchester were on their way to dinner when two men on a moped threw acid over them.
Nicky Ghee and Rochelle Trup suffered burns to their faces, hands and chests and were flown to the mainland capital Dar es Salaam for treatment.
They had been volunteering at a local school in Zanzibar, which suffered a wave of deadly protests last year as supporters of an Islamist group repeatedly clashed with the police.
Police would not link the attack to rising religious tension on the island between majority Muslims and its Christian population.
“The attackers approached the girls as they were walking on a street at around 7:15pm and threw acid at them,” Zanzibar regional police commander Mkadam Khamis Mkadam said.
“The incident occurred when the streets were deserted as most people were breaking their Ramadan fast.”
