A wife has been left blind and unable to speak after her mouth was melted shut when her own husband poured acid all over her face. 

Atsede Nigussiem, 26, was at home in Tigrai, Ethiopia, when she opened the door to estranged partner Haimanot Kahsai, 29. Without warning he launched a sickening acid attack leaving his wife in agony as their five-year-old son Hannibal Kahsai slept inside.

Such is the severity of her injuries, she has to eat and drink through a straw and spends all day crying - one of the few things she can still do. 

After the attack, Atsede ran screaming into the street for help from neighbours while Kahsai fled into the night.

Two months later Astede is still in pain, her mouth has been melted together so she cannot talk, she is blind in her left eye and at severe risk of losing the sight in her right eye.
