Margot Parker has said she hoped the the first ever prosecution in Somalia for FGM, brings about change.

She said: "It is truly shocking the death of a ten-year-old girl while undergoing this awful procedure has had to bring things to a head.

"It is a tragic price.

"But now the Somalian Government has pledged to being the country's first ever prosecution.

"We can only pray this brings about a change in attitudes and helps the process of stopping this practice once and for all."
