Ex-boyfriend held for contracting acid attack on lawyer

Pesaro, April 17 - Police said Wednesday they were holding a man suspected of hiring someone to throw acid in the face of an ex-girlfriend. Luca Varani, a 35-year-old lawyer, is being questioned for allegedly contracting an attack on fellow lawyer Lucia Annibali near her home in Pesaro, off the central Adriatic coast. The attacker is said to have waited inside her home late Tuesday and ambushed her when she set foot inside. Annibali, despite the excruciating pain of the substance - believed to be sulfuric acid - managed to call for help and give the police promising leads for the investigation. Police earlier said "there is an affair" behind the story, but would not specify. The woman had reported her ex to authorities for abuse and unlawful entry. Neighbors said Varani was spotted recently trying to enter Annibali's apartment after she had changed the locks.
