(Newser) – A London man was beaten, stabbed, and forced to drink acid in what police believe was an "honor attack," the Daily Mail reports. The victim lost his tongue in the attack and remains in critical condition. Police believe the man, who was originally Danish, was attacked because he was suspected of having an affair with a married Muslim woman from Pakistan. Two men have been charged with attempted murder, and sources say the woman's brother is among the suspects. Police have warned her that her life may be in danger.
