The two teenage victims of the Zanzibar acid attack have arrived back in the UK, as a photo has emerged showing the extent of Kirstie Trup’s injuries.
The teenagers, both from north London, were working with the Art in Tanzania charity as part of a four-week internship when the unprovoked attack happened.
Their trip, arranged by volunteering organisation i-to-i, was due to come to an end on Saturday.
Two weeks earlier, Ms Gee wrote on Facebook: ‘A Muslim woman just hit me in the street for singing on Ramadan. Is that normal?’
There have been some attacks on tourists failing to dress conservatively in the predominantly Muslim country but the charity said the volunteers knew it was Ramadan and had dressed appropriately.
Their injuries are said to be relatively minor and they are not expected to be scarred.
Deputy police commissioner Mkadam Khamis said: ‘Police in Zanzibar have launched a manhunt and asked for public assistance.
‘We do not know the motive of this attack. Normally guys on motorcycles snatch bags and cameras, but this is new. It is worrying.’
Five men are being questioned over the Stone Town attack, the head of the local police has confirmed, with officials also confirming a reward of 10million Tanzanian shillings (£4,000) for information that leads to the arrest of the perpetrators.
According to reports, three of the men who were under questioning have subsequently been released while the remaining two are still being interviewed by officers over the attack on charity volunteers Miss Trup and Katie Gee, both 18.
I would like to make it clear that these girls were not British as the media has been reporting, they were Jews.
And instead of helping white children that need help in countries like the Ukraine, and Romania, they chose to ignore the plight of white European children and go to help Africans. These people prefer to help Negros than whites, as they see whites as less important. And as is often the case, the laws of nature have taught these anti-whites a lesson for helping un-grateful savage Africans and ignoring decent innocent white kids.
