  • 14 April 2017 – BBc News

A doctor in the US city of Detroit has been charged with carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM) on young girls in what is believed to be the first case of its kind in the country.

Prosecutors said Jumana Nagarwala had been performing the practice on girls aged between six and eight for 12 years.

She was investigated after the authorities received a tip-off. If found guilty, she faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

FGM was made illegal in the US in 1996.

The End-of-World Scenario. The Real Danger of Nuclear War – commentary

What Would a US-European-Russian War Look Like? The End-of-World Scenario. The Real Danger of Nuclear War

Since the April 6 missile strike, the Trump administration has issued new threats against Syria and new ultimatums to Russia to end its support for the regime of Bashar al-Assad. On Wednesday, President Trump defended the unprovoked strike and called Assad a “butcher.”

Re-evaluating Digital Relationship: Time to Detox

By Yvonne Sam

I recently attended a play at a well-known theatre. Having arrived and waiting to be joined by a friend, I unobtrusively made my way to find a seat in the lobby. No one noticed my entry; I could have disembarked from a space ship bedecked in my birth suit, presenting parts visible, bows for extra adornment, and it would have had the same effect. No one looked up. The over a dozen or so adults were all paying homage to their mobile devices.   Continue reading
