DEVELOPING: UK Looking to Ban Acid Sale to Minors

LONDON (ALBOENEWS) — The government of the United Kingdom is looking to ban the sale of corrosive substances to people under the age of 18, according to officials.

The proposed change comes after a number of acid attacks in the country.

According to Reuters, “much to public alarm, the number of incidents where assailants have used acid has risen sharply, with police figures suggesting there had been more than 400 corrosive substance attacks in the six months to April this year.”
