Female Genital Mutilation in Egypt

In this Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 photo, an Egyptian woman seen from a motorized rickshaw walks on a street, near the home of 13-year-old Sohair el-Batea who died undergoing the procedure of female genital mutilation committed by Dr. Raslan Fadl, in Dierb Biqtaris village, on the outskirts of Aga town in Dakahliya,120 kilometers (75 miles) northeast of Cairo, Egypt. The latest survey on FGM rates, conducted in 2008, showed a prevalence rate of 91% for women aged 15-49. But that rate is lower for women aged 15-17, at 74%. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
