From the web: “Egypt struggles to end female genital mutilation”

AWLAD SERAG, Egypt (Reuters) – In a tiny village in Egypt’s southern province of Assiut, 16-year-old Amany Shamekh, who wants to be an artist one day, recalls how she was illegally circumcised with a razor blade. Genital cutting of girls was banned in Egypt in 2008 and criminalized in 2016.
