Acid Attack Victim Kirstie Trup Out Of Hospital
One of two young British women who had acid thrown at them in Zanzibar has been discharged from hospital after treatment for her injuries.
The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital said Kirstie Trup left on Sunday night.
Katie Gee - whose burns were described as "horrendous" by her mother - is still being treated.
A statement from the hospital said: "No details on either of the patients' treatment will be released at this time.
"This approach is in line with the families' wishes and we continue to ask that the media respect their privacy at this time."
The 18-year-olds had been working as volunteer teachers when they were attacked by two men on a motorbike, the first such attack on foreigners on the Indian Ocean island.
Witnesses have spoken of their desperate attempts to wash the acid off the teenagers before they were rushed to hospital.
Ms Gee's family released a photograph of her injuries, showing dark burns seared across her jaw, neck and chest.
On Saturday, she took to Twitter to thank well-wishers, saying: "Thank you for all your support x."
Zanzibar's Tourism Minister Said Ali Mbarouk has offered a reward of 10 million Tanzanian shillings (£2,958) for information leading to the arrest of the suspects, describing the attack as "a shame on the people of Zanzibar".
Five people detained over the attacks were questioned over the weekend.
A radical Muslim preacher wanted in connection with the attack escaped on Sunday after being shot by officers in the shoulder with a tear gas canister.
However, there was confusion about whether Sheikh Issa Ponda Issa had later been detained after handing himself in to a hospital for treatment.
