LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): A pregnant girl, whose face was badly burnt by acid, has been found dead in the southern province of Helmand, an official said on Monday.

Police spokesman Maj. Farid Ahmad Obaid told Pajhwok Afghan News the body was recovered a ruined house in Bashran area late on Sunday. The victim’s identity is yet to be established.
