LONDON (Reuters) – British police said on Saturday they had charged a 16-year-old boy with 15 offences following five related acid attacks in London two days earlier.
The charges include grievous bodily harm, possession of an item to discharge a noxious substance, and robbery.
The boy is due to appear before Stratford Youth Court on Monday, London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
