Cambodian acid attack victim on rebuilding her life


A worrying rise in acid attacks has prompted the Cambodian government to draft new laws to punish those who carry them out.

At least a dozen incidents have been reported since the start of this year, against both men and women.

Keo Srey Vy was attacked last year. She describes how the Cambodian Acid Survivors' Charity has helped her rebuild her life and body and what she thinks should happen to people who carry out the attacks.
