The stuff nightmares are made of. It's not "terror-related" they say. Just a normal Muslim cultural expression. Women cannot go around with their faces uncovered. Muslims men (or even women) might be offended and throw acid on them. Daily Mail:


A victim of an acid attack, Sonali Mukherjee-Tiwari

Two female American tourists suffered facial injuries in an acid attack that left two others nursing burns, outside a train station in Marseille.

The four tourists, in their early twenties, were travelling between Marseilles and Paris when a 41-year-old man sprayed them with hydrochloric acid, according to reports

It is understood the tourists were in gare Saint-Charles station just after 11am this morning when the attacker struck. 

According to witnesses, no slogans were shouted out during the attack, and it was not thought to be terrorist related.

All four of those involved in the incident were thought to be American women, and they were travelling as a party.

The acid was thought to be in a spray canister sold in DIY shops for cleaning purposes.

Local media say the acid hit two girls in the face leaving them with facial burns, while two others are in shock.

According to reports, a 41-year-old man was arrested by police and the two tourists were taken to hospital.
