Acid anniversary

The one-year anniversary of the vicious acid attack upon former karaoke video performer

Tat Samarina passed on December 5 with no arrest of the crime's major suspect.

Samarina was mutilated after Khoun Sophal, wife of Council of Ministers Advisor Svay

Sitha, allegedly ordered her bodyguards to hold Samarina to the ground while Sophal

poured five liters of nitric acid over her face and upper body in a crowded market.

Khoun Sophal is believed to be living openly at the family home in Phnom Penh's Toul

Kork district.
