    India acid: Four sisters injured in Uttar Pradesh attack

    Police in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh are investigating an attack on four sisters who suffered burns after acid was thrown at them.

    The women, all teachers, were walking home from a school when they were attacked by two men on a motorbike.

    One of the women was admitted to hospital with serious burns. The motive for the attack is unclear.

    I'm surprised this even made it into the news. Uttar Pradesh is one of the more backward areas of India. The value of women is almost nil. If one COULD dig up all the crimes against women, this might be tame. Yeah, it's awful - maybe the US should invade it?

    It looks like it might have been a family affair. They arrested the brother-in-law of one of the victims.
