UK government condemns female genital mutilation
by Carla Mackenzie
The British government has spoken out against the practice of female genital mutilation.
According to equalities minister Lynne Featherstone, this is an "abhorrent crime" and those who subject women to the procedure must be punished.
Indeed, she stressed that practitioners must "feel the full force of the law" in order to stop them mutilating females.
