Police investigate 'FGM' on a baby
by Martin Bentham
Scotland Yard is investigating the alleged female genital mutilation of a baby from London.
The girl, a Briton of Malaysian descent, is understood to have been taken abroad and subjected to "type 4" FGM when only a few months old.
Her family is thought to have believed that the procedure — which involves pricking the clitoris and is known as circumcision in Malaysia — was legal. But it is a criminal offence in this country, and they are being investigated after their daughter's injury was reported to police by medical staff.
