Posted: Updated:

A young woman has been found guilty of throwing acid in the face of a friend while disguised in a Muslim veil.

Mary Konye, 21, attacked Naomi Oni, an assistant at a Victoria's Secret lingerie shop, on December 30 2012 because she once called her ugly.

During her trial, the jury at London's Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that, following the attack, Konye pretended to give Ms Oni a shoulder to cry on.
