    LONDON - Two dozen people suffered burns to their faces, hands and arms in a suspected acid attack at a pub in Bristol, southwestern England, police said Monday. Officers arrested a 25-year-old woman, who was injured in the early Sunday morning incident, in connection with the incident, Avon and Somerset Police said. A police spokesman said it appeared that a "corrosive substance" was thrown on 24 people. The victims received treatment at two hospitals, and most were later released. Police gave no further details.
