IS orders genital mutilation - UN
24 Jul 2014 13:01
Islamic State militants in Iraq have ordered that all women between the ages of 11 and 46 undergo female genital mutilation, a UN official has said.

"It is a fatwa (or religious edict) of ISIS, we learnt this this morning," said Jacqueline Badcock, the number two UN official in Iraq.
-
"This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed.
-
"This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists."

She was referring to the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) which took over large swathes of the country last month.
