Acid attack disfigures lawyer in Italian coastal town

Pesaro, April 17 - The paramilitary Carabinieri police in the eastern Italian coastal town of Pesaro are working on a well-defined lead to catch the man who threw a container of acid in the face of a 35-year-old woman lawyer Tuesday night. The victim, Lucia Annibali, has a law practice in the historic inland town of Urbino, but her home is in Pesaro, 45 minutes away on the Adriatic coast. The aggressor lay in wait inside her home in Pesaro Tuesday evening, and ambushed her when she set foot inside. The lawyer, despite the excruciating pain of the substance - believed to be sulfuric acid - flowing down her skin, managed to call for help and give the police promising leads for the investigation. Police let slip that "there is an affair" behind the story, but would not specify the context. It is not believed a vendetta for ending a relationship. Investigators would not comment on whether the aggressor was a client. Police took individuals for questioning on Wednesday, but so far there are no arrests.
