Acid attack woman out of hospital
The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, where the two teenagers received treatment after their return to Britain
One of the two teenagers injured in an acid attack in Zanzibar has been discharged from hospital.
Kirstie Trup spent three days at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital after being injured in an unprovoked attack on Wednesday.
A spokeswoman for the hospital said she left while her friend remains, being treated for burns where she was previously said to be in a "stable" condition.
The spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that Kirstie Trup was discharged from the hospital last night. Katie Gee remains in hospital. No details on either of the patients' treatment will be released at this time.
"This approach is in line with the families' wishes and we continue to ask that the media respect their privacy at this time."
The pair, who are both 18 and from north London, were on a volunteering holiday on the island, off the coast of Tanzania, when they were targeted.
A cleric is reported to be in custody after being arrested on suspicion of carrying out the attack. The Daily Telegraph said sheikh Issa Ponda Issa handed himself in to police a day after he was injured as he tried to evade officers.
One friend of the pair told how one of the two men involved in the unprovoked attack "smiled" before throwing acid. Speaking from Zanzibar, medical student Olivia Moore told Channel 4 News: "The two men were on a moped and they went past a group of tourists.
"They stopped for the girls and the two men then looked at each other, nodded, and then the man on the back of the bike smiled and threw acid on the girls.
"From then on it's just chaotic. There was no incident that preceded the actual attack. Everyone was shocked. Nobody can think of a motivation or anything that precipitated this."
