Mideast Egypt Female Genital Mutilation

In this Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 photo, Egyptian school girls and women 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 Aga town in Dakahliya,120 kilometers (75 miles) northeast of Cairo, Egypt. FGM was criminalized in 2008 and the most important Sunni Muslim religious authority has declared it dangerous and without any religious justification, but rights advocates say it is still widespread.
