    Why UN warned of cross-border female genital mutilation threat

    The United Nations human rights office on Friday warned that the global fight against female genital mutilation was being undermined by families crossing borders to have girls undergo the procedure. A report by the U.N. rights office found that some families in countries where the practice is banned were travelling to neighbouring states or further afield where it was legal or where law criminalising it were not enforced.
