LONDON, United Kingdom

A 37 year old Ugandan woman has become the first person in the UK to be found guilty of female genital mutilation (FGM).

Authorities in UK say she and her spouse were found guilty but 34-year-old partner was acquitted by the jury.

The suspect is a mother of a three-year-old girl and was convicted following a trial at the Old Bailey.

The Jury heard that spells and curses that were intended to deter police and social workers from investigating were found at the woman’s home.
