Ethiopians React to Georgia Court Sentence for Father Who Circumscised Daughter

"Hundreds of Ethiopians took to the streets of Addis Ababa on Saturday calling for a retrial of an Ethiopian jailed in the United States for circumcising his daughter. In what was believed to be the first such case in the United States, a Georgia judge sentenced Khalid Adem to 10 years in prison this month for removing his two-year-old daughter's clitoris with scissors in 2001. The jailing has fuelled a passionate debate across Africa, with some approving the punishment but others opposing it." By Reuters, N.Y. Times Link to Website (last visited 11-20-06 NVS)
