Mideast Egypt Female Genital Mutilation

In this Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 photo, Egyptian school children walk on a street, near the home of 13-year-old Sohair el-Batea who died undergoing the procedure of female genital mutilation performed by Dr. Raslan Fadl, in Dierb Biqtaris village, on the outskirts of the town of Aga in Dakahliya,120 kilometers (75 miles) northeast of Cairo, Egypt. Fadl’s continued work demonstrates the challenges to curbing FGM in Egypt, which has one of the highest rates of the practice in the world, at more than 90 percent. The operation involves removing the clitoris and all or part of the labia minora, according to UNICEF. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
