The British government is set to launch a review on tougher sentencing for perpetrators of acid attacks after Home Secretary Amber Rudd said those found guilty should "feel the full force of the law", suggesting that life sentences should be in place for this crime. According to a report released by the Metropolitan Police Service in March, acid attacks are on the rise in London. Police have told CNN that trend has continued this year. One of the proposals being considered by the government is to ensure that acid will be considered as a dangerous weapon.The review will also ascertain whether it could impose measures on retailers to restrict the sale of such substances.
