Please help… I don't want to be cut like my sister when we go back to Africa
Teachers were today told they must report female genital mutilation to police as a heart-rending letter from an 11-year-old London girl whose sister was sent abroad to be cut was published by campaigners.
The letter, sent to London charity Equality Now, tells how the girl's 12-year-old sister was subjected to the procedure by aunts at her grandmother's home in Gambia.
The girl — who tells how her sister was warned that "spirits will come and kill her immediately" if she reported the crime — says she is worried the same will happen to her.
