Indian Woman Attacked With Acid for Fifth Time

A 35-year-old woman who survived an alleged gang rape and four separate acid attacks was again hit by corrosive liquid, Indian police said Sunday. She was filling water at a hand pump at a women’s hostel in Uttar Pradesh when a man poured the chemicals onto her face and shoulder. The woman, who is now undergoing treatment at a hospital, was supposed to be under around-the-clock police protection because of prior attacks, but the armed policeman was not allowed to enter the women’s hostel.
