FGM in Dakar 01/22/2010
 
I found this article and thought that this would be interested:

http://www.alertnet.org/db/an_art/58388/2010/00/21-170431-1.htm

"Human rights campaigners who have been struggling for years to eliminate female genital mutilation (FGM) in West Africa got a boost this week as news emerged that a group of Muslim clerics and scholars in Mauritania had declared a fatwa, or religious decree, against the practice."

Score one for the good guys!
