Recovering acid attack victim in Ethiopia ties the knot


Kamilat Mehdin who suffered serious facial burn and damage from an acid attack in 2007 G.C got married with her fiance yesterday in Addis Ababa. Kamilat’s attack was the first widely reported acid attack in Ethiopia and received significant media coverage and nationwide condemnation. The alleged attacker have been convicted by court and sentenced to death but was later commuted to life in prison while people who were accused of helping him received length prison term. The case had seen a wide range of controversies and rumors during the trial as well as the appeal and a recent media report that three people confessed to the crime brought the topic back into public light again. Kamilat had to go through a number of facial reconstruction surgeries in France and Thailand.
