Far East clinics offer genital mutilation to UK girls
A BBC investigation has discovered a group of clinics in the Far East willing to carry out female genital mutilation on British children, a procedure which has been illegal in the UK for nearly 30 years.
It is estimated that up to 20,000 children in the UK are at risk of this practice each year which involves the complete or partial removal of the external genital organs.
Nasiim Ahmed, working with BBC Inside Out, discovered a group of clinics in Singapore which were willing to provide a form of female genital mutilation called Sunat.
