I'm trying to remove some attributes in a generic way. see example below. I 
need to remove all last_name attributes regardless of the node.

Is there a generic way .

Thanks in advance.

Original document
  <person first_name="Dave" last_name="Rowe">
     <person first_name="Sandra" last_name="Smith" />
  <person first_name="Patrick" last_name="Sullivan" />

Expected output


  <person first_name="Dave">

     <person first_name="Sandra" />


  <person first_name="Patrick" />
