Acid horror girls ‘targeted by admirer they spurned

The teenage victims of the Zanzibar acid attack may have been targeted in a revenge attack by a spurned admirer, according to friends on the idyllic island.

Kirstie Trup and Katie Gee, both 18, were still in hospital in London last night after being flown back from Africa by air ambulance on Friday. They had been walking to meet friends for dinner when two men on a passing moped splashed battery acid over them on Wednesday.
