Mideast Egypt Female Genital Mutilation

In this Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 photo, Reda el-Danbouki, Egyptian lawyer for 13-year-old Sohair el-Batea who died undergoing the procedure of female genital mutilation committed by Dr. Raslan Fadl, points at her grave in Dierb Biqtaris village, on the outskirts of Aga town in Dakahliya,120 kilometers (75 miles) northeast of Cairo, Egypt. It was not easy getting the landmark case to trial, and no cases had come before a court, years after FGM was banned. Sohair’s family initially filed a police report saying she died as a result of FGM, but later changed their story after reconciling with the doctor, said el-Danbouki. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
