Nigerian couple arrested for genitally mutilating daughters
The couple living in a village near the city of Perugia was reported by a public health doctor and by social services.
While the female genital mutilation (FGM) may have been carried out abroad, the parents are liable in Italy because both children were born and reside here, police said. The couple was placed under house arrest because the court considered them a flight risk, the sources said.
