Three to stand trial for 'cutting' girls
by Jacqueline Le
Lawyers defending three people committed to stand trial for taking part in the genital mutilation of two young sisters in Sydney say their clients' actions did not break NSW law.
The lawyers for the girls' mother, a retired nurse and a sheikh said on Friday that a "nick" or "cut" does not meet the legal definition of mutilation.
The girls were aged six and seven at the time of the alleged mutilations between October 2010 and July 2012.
