Islamabad – Police in Pakistan say they have arrested a woman for allegedly throwing acid on a man who refused to marry her.

Local police official Bashir Ahmed said on Friday the attack took place a day before, in the Mukhdoom Rashid neighbourhood of Multan, a city in central Pakistan. Ahmed identified the woman as 32-year-old Monil Mai.
