Acid attack survivors take 'refuge' in beauty salons

Musarat Misbah, the owner of a chain of beauty parlours in Pakistan, has set up a charity to help care for acid attack survivors, some of whom she also employs in the salons.

Bushra Shafi's is one of those survivors. Her husband's family poured acid onto her face in front of her two children, leaving her looking like "a big slab of meat".

The BBC's Shaimaa Khalil spoke to both women in one of the salons in Lahore.
