Female genital mutilation remains a big problem in the United Kingdom

Young girls are being sent to Britain for the abusive removal of their genitalia by migrant families across Europe because the country is regarded as a soft touch on the ritual, an investigation has found.

Amina Yahaya, an 18-year-old British-Somali student living in Bristol, said she knew of “FGM parties” being held in the city. “They cut them all together, as a group,” she explained, “because it is cheaper. At first, the girls are all excited because it’s a party, until they realise what is going to happen, and then they get frightened.”
