    Parts of London are being labelled ‘no-go zones’ for delivery drivers because of the volume of acid and knife attacks. Hackney, Camden, Stoke Newington, Bethnal Green, Stratford and Elephant & Castle were also listed among the danger zones. London has a higher number of acid attacks per person than any city in the world. According to The Sun, delivery drivers are now slashing their hours and refusing to operate in parts of the capital – gangs are targeting them for their mopeds, holding them up at knife point or spraying acid in their faces. It’s absolutely shocking that in Britain’s...

    London (AFP) - Delivery rider Jabed Hussain was waiting at a traffic light one night in east London when two attackers sprayed acid in his face and stole his moped. It was one of hundreds of attacks in the British capital every year that have prompted government intervention and left the city's police force asking the public for help to tackle the crime wave. Hussain recalled feeling "burning on my face" during the robbery in Hackney. "If they want to take my bike, there are a lot of weapons... why (have) they got to choose the weapon of acid?" he...

    A burns surgeon who treats many acid attack victims coming out of East London has suggested that the proliferation of such crimes is now at epidemic levels. Dr Martin Niall, a burn surgeon at Mid-Essex Hospital, told National Public Radio (NPR) in the U.S. that acid attacks in Britain “are now at levels that one of my colleagues described as epidemic”. He added: “Everyone, ourselves included, has been shocked by this emerging threat to public health.” In terms of attacks per head of population, London is now the acid attack capital of the world, with a 74 per cent rise...

    Since 2010 there have been more than 1,800 reports of attacks involving corrosive fluids in the capital. It is thought acid is becoming a preferred weapon for gangs due to its ease to obtain and lack of trail to the perpetrator. Last year it was used in 454 crimes, compared to 261 in 2015, according to Met Police figures obtained by the BBC. --SNIP-- The vast majority of cases never reach trial, according to the figures.

    As I noted earlier today, acid attacks are a hallmark of angry Muslim men in Pakistan, where women have been disfigured in acid attacks for crimes such as rejecting a marriage proposal or being raped. Now there has been a spate of such attacks in Berlin. Seven out of ten victims in London are male, in gang-related crimes. But that leave 30%, or 450, female victims. This is without any doubt a consequence of the Islamization of Britain. “There Have Been 1,500 Acid Attacks Since 2011 In… London,” by Christine Rousselle, Townhall, March 16, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of...

    VANCOUVER, Wash. – A bizarre attack sent a Vancouver woman to the hospital on Monday and police said they believe her attacker threw some kind of acid in her face. Bethany Storro had no idea who the woman was who attacked her and no idea why someone picked her for an attack. Storro, 28, doesn’t usually wear sunglasses but she bought a pair about an hour before the attack. Those glasses may have saved her eyesight. She had stopped to get a coffee at a Starbucks near Esther Short Park at 8th and Columbia and was getting something out...

The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker...
