ITALY

In recent years Italy has seen an increase. There were 27 registered assaults in 2016, compared with eight in 2013. Unlike the UK, the majority of victims are women and attacks committed by ex-boyfriends or husbands.
IRAN

Anecdotal evidence suggests that acid violence is common in Iran. However it is very difficult to obtain official statistics on numbers.
AFGANISTAN

There have been a number of reported cases in Afghanistan. It is likely that acid violence is common but unreported in Afghanistan. The Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission reported a seven percent rise in violent assaults against women — from 1,394 to 2,579 — in the last two years.
COLOMBIA

Colombia has approximately 100 recorded attacks a year and with a population of around 48 million this makes attacks in Colombia one of the highest per capita.
UGANDA

There were 382 victims of acid violence in Uganda between 1985 and May 2011. Of the 382 cases, the majority (58%) were recorded in the Central region of Uganda.
CAMBODIA

There was a sharp increase in number of recorded attacks in 2000 (40 attacks). Numbers of recorded attacks have now declined to single figures.
NEPAL

In Nepal, acid throwing is not very common, but there are a high number of burns cases caused by kerosene. The vast majority of victims are women.
PAKISTAN

Pakistan has seen a dramatic decline since 2014 (153 reported attacks in that year). But the real number will be higher.
BANGLADESH

Attacks in Bangladesh peaked at around 400 in 2002 but attacks have now declined to under 100 per year.
INDIA

India had approx. 300 recorded attacks in 2016. These are recorded attacks. Many attacks go unreported which means that the real number is likely to exceed 1000.
