Some 14,000 villagers representing 20 communities have taken part in a ceremonial vow to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced child marriage in Niger.
School-age girls in London are "already being prepared" to leave the country so that they can undergo female genital mutilation (FGM) during the summer holidays, junior minister for international development Lynne Featherstone has warned.
