Warning – bad stuff.
A top UN official in Iraq has said the Sunni Islamist group Isis controlling the city of Mosul is seeking to impose female genital mutilation.
All females aged 11 and 46 in the northern city must undergo the procedure, according to an Isis edict, UN official Jacqueline Badcock said.
That second sentence must be a typo – it has to mean aged from 11 to 46, not 11 and 46.
At any rate, if it’s true, and they mean it – well. That’s quite something.
Yo, George Bush? Feeling proud of your accomplishments this morning?
