Breaking News: Egypt FGM Trial 'Convicts Raslan Fadl Of Manslaughter'

An Egyptian doctor has been convicted in a retrial of carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM) surgery, a lawyer and a campaign
group say.
Raslan Fadl was sentenced to two years in prison with labour for manslaughter, with a further three months for FGM. His clinic was also closed for a year.
The doctor had denied carrying out FGM on 13-year-old Suhair al-Bataa.
A spokeswoman for the activist group Equality Now called the decision a "monumental victory".
Suhair al-Bataa died in 2013. Her father also faced trial and was given a suspended sentence on Monday.
In an initial trial both Fadl and the father had been cleared.
The practice of FGM was banned in Egypt in 2008 but is still widespread.
More than 90% of Egyptian women aged under 50 have undergone the procedure, according to government statistics.
