Pakistani Acid-Attack Victim Enjoys New Life in Texas

  • VOA Khmer

Among the new US citizens sworn in at a ceremony in Houston Tuesday was a 26-year-old woman from Pakistan who came to the United States after she had acid thrown in her face 10 years ago. Doctors in Houston performed more than a score of surgeries to restore her face and, although still scarred, she is moving on with her life and trying to help other victims of violence back in her homeland. VOA's Greg Flakus has more from Houston.
