Relatives of acid attack victims speak out over 'delays'

Relatives of two young women who were seriously injured in an acid attack in Zanzibar have spoken of their frustration over delays in finding the perpetrator.

Londoners Kirstie Trup and Katie Gee, both 18, are recovering after being targeted by two men on a moped during a volunteering holiday on August 7.

Doug Morris, the partner of Miss Gee's mother, told the BBC's Radio 4 Today programme: "If the Foreign and Commonwealth Office are as committed to helping to bring these people to justice on behalf of two British citizens, then you would expect them to move hell and high water to do that."

Miss Trup's father Marc said the families are "not getting any progress whatsoever" and that he suspected the Tanzanian authorities "just hope this will go away".

"I don't blame the country, I don't blame the religion. I blame the person. He needs to be brought to justice," he added.
