Man Indicted in Nazareth Acid Attack


A 51-year-old man from the Israeli Arab city of Nazareth was indicted Sunday for throwing acid in the face of a 16-year-old girl from the city. The man and a 17-year-old from the city are also accused of sex crimes against the girl going back for several years.

The man who attacked the girl apparently did so after she refused to marry him.

The girl who was attacked remains hospitalized. Doctors say she has suffered irreversible damage to both eyes.
