FGM being inflicted in new ways to avoid detection, MPs warned
by Martin Bentham
Cutters are using new techniques to inflict female genital mutilation on girls living in Britain in an attempt to avoid detection, MPs have been warned.
The Royal College of Midwives said that the "communities" who carried out FGM had begun to "vary the practice" to stay "one step ahead" of those seeking to stop the crime.
It cited one recent case in which mutilation of a type "never seen before" had been inflicted, and added that the new tactics were creating "difficulties" for medical staff as they battled to eradicate the barbaric practice.
