It appears to have been a fight between two groups of teenagers.Sadly acid has become an increasingly common weapon of choice among a wide range of people. In this country it has occurred since the 18th and 19th centuries.

Would it surprise me to see it used by Islamist terrorists - not at all, would it be a surprise to see it used in other forms of attacks, honour crimes, other types of domestic violence cases, gangs, muggings, etc - not at all.

Then again you are not interested in facts.
I have heard that it is commonly used in 'honour' crimes. Particularly against white men who have a relationship with a Muslim woman. As well as against the Muslim women involved of course.

Heard is not proof especially depending on which saloon bar you heard it in.

That is correct; the attacks are very common and muslim women and anglo men are the preferred targets in most cases-

In which country are white men and Muslim women the predominant targets for acid attacks because they are in relationships? Which is after all what you have just claimed.

Acid attacks are widespread in many Muslim majority nations and women have been targeted for being in relationships, refusing relationships, revenge attacks, so called honour attacks. They are also common in India and not just to Muslims.

Or did you mean in the UK?

The incident I read about was in London about a Pakistani woman who had an affair with a white man. Both were attacked with acid by the women's relatives.

One case that you heard of makes it particularly so?
