Acid-attack girl vows to return to Zanzibar

Despite her ordeal Miss Trup has insisted she has many happy memories of her spell in Zanzibar.

But the student, who gave police a “very detailed” description of the attack, has questioned why the authorities have not caught their attackers in Stone Town, where “everyone knows everyone”.

She told a Sunday newspaper: “This experience, as horrible as it has been, has not deterred me from wanting to do more voluntary work in Zanzibar.”
