Bangladesh: Man throws acid on wife for dowry

Jesmin Akter, 23, was admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital with severe burns to much of her face and scalp as well other parts of her lower body.

Her body has been wrapped in large swathes of fabric bandages in an attempt to prevent the burnt skin from touching other areas injured by the acid in the attack. Ms Akter is one of 1847 women who have been the victim of an acid attack in Bangladesh between 1999 and 2015.
