https://hrwf.eu/egypt-female-genital...-syrian-girls/ This is very sad. Reports are now emerging of young Syrian refugee girls in Egypt having their genitals mutilated – a widespread practice among Egyptians – by Syrian parents. Cases of what is also known as female genital mutilation (FGM) began to surface months ago. "Syrian refugees started adapting the culture, [and] they started accepting things we are trying to abandon." Zaid M. Yaish, who also works at the UN fund, said poverty and desire to marry off daughters are among the likely factors that contribute to the abuse. I'm pretty sure this isn't the "mild" type either. They cut out EVERYTHING, and sew the girl up leaving a tiny hole. Wonderful parents... They were awfully quick to adapt considering they came from an area where FGM wasn't practiced.
