Teen charged in London acid attacks
``The Metropolitan Police force said late Saturday that a 16-year-old boy faces 15 charges, including grievous bodily harm.
The boy, who can't be named because of his age, was arrested after five moped riders were sprayed with a corrosive substance during a 90-minute period last week.
One man was left with life-changing injuries, police said.
Police say the number of reported attacks with corrosive liquids in London rose from 261 in 2015 to 454 in 2016. Some appear related to gang activity or the theft of cars and motorbikes.
Amid mounting public concern, the British government said it is considering increasing sentences for acid attacks to a maximum of life.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd wrote in the 'Sunday Times' newspaper that those who use noxious liquids as a weapon should "feel the full force of the law."
