After Circumcision- 13-year-old Girl Dies In Egypt

According to a report from Al Masry Al Youm newspaper ,  it states “The death of a 13-year-old
girl at a private clinic while undergoing a circumcision operation has once
again highlighted that female private part mutilation continues to endanger
lives in Egypt despite laws forbidding the practice.
The family of the girl, identified as Soher, filed an
official complaint, accusing the doctor who performed the operation of having
caused her death.
The girl died on Thursday evening in a village in the
Daqahliya governorate, north-east of Cairo.

Doctors and nurses in Egypt have been banned from performing
procedures involving female private part mutilation (FGM) since 2007 following
the death of two young girls after being subjected to such surgeries at public
hospitals. The procedure was subsequently declared illegal in 2008.

The ban notwithstanding, poorer families continue to put
youngsters at grave risk. According to national statistics, around 80 per cent
of girls born to poor families become victims of FGM, as against only 30 per
cent of girls from wealthy, educated backgrounds.
“We left our daughter with the doctor and the nurse. Fifteen
minutes later, the nurse took my daughter out of the operation room to a nearby
room, along with three other girls whom the doctor was circumcising,” Soher’s
father, Mohammad Ebrahim, a farmer, told the Al Masry Al Youm newspaper.
“I waited half an hour hoping that my daughter would wake up
but, unfortunately, unlike the rest of the girls, she did not,” Ebrahim said.
“The doctor brought her back to the operation room and then
we were surprised when an ambulance transferred her out of the clinic. When we
asked the doctor what was going on, he told us that she was weak and that the
clinic did not have the necessary [medical] equipment to treat her. When we
reached Aga Central Hospital, they told us she was dead. If I had known the
operation was going to kill her, I would never have [allowed] her to have it.
The same doctor conducted a similar operation on her elder sister two years
ago, and villagers visit this doctor because he has a remedy for everything at
low prices,” the distraught father said.
“The doctor does everything and the nurse helps him. Doctors
at the Aga Hospital told me that she died of an anaesthesia overdose,” the
girl’s mother, Hasanat Naeem Fawzi, said.
“I want nothing but to hold the doctor accountable and to
have justice for my daughter,” Hasanat said.
The girl’s uncle, Mohammad, said that the doctor had offered
the family 20,000 Egyptian pounds (Dh10,299) in return for an assurance that
they would not file a complaint against him.
Tareq Hamouda, head of the Aga prosecution in Daqahliya,
summoned the doctor for an interrogation and ordered that an autopsy be
conducted on the girl to find the cause of death.
Abdul Salam, the family’s lawyer, said that although most
forensic doctors were on vacation, the prosecutor was able to call on one to
conduct the autopsy. The health inspector’s report, he added, confirmed that
the cause of death was a sharp drop in blood pressure resulting from shock
Abdul Wahab Sulaiman, undersecretary of the Ministry of
Health in Daqahlia, said that the Health Directorate had not yet been notified
of the incident. He stressed that FGM is strictly prohibited and that the
doctor had violated the law ˮ.
 May God give the
family the strength to bear  the loss of Soher
