FGM in Europe

In this round-up, David Rusin of Islamist Watch lists recent efforts in Britain, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden to stop the illegal practice of female genital mutilation (FGM). Thousands of these operations are estimated to have been carried out on young Muslim girls in Europe; sometimes the girls are sent abroad, and sometimes the operation is performed in the European country of residence.

The good news is that public awareness of this problem is finally catching up, and European governments are seeking to stop it.
