Officials Horrified By What Man Did To This Toddler

Authorities in Dublin, Ireland are questioning a Somalian national about the mutilation of a female toddler's genitals. According to reports, the mother of two called someone to carry out the barbaric practices that is traditional to her homeland.

The mother lived alone with her two daughters, ages five and two. The 2-year-old girl is being treated in the hospital after her mother allegedly arranged for her genital mutilation. Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a common practice in many African countries.

Though there are no health benefits to FMG, and the procedure does pose a risk of infection and later childbirth complications, it's still considered a cultural tradition for many people. In Ireland, however, it's illegal.

The man was arrested and police are investigating the incident. It is unclear at this point what, if any, role he played in the child’s injuries. Another female suspect who may have carried out the mutilation is still on the loose.

The Irish Family Planning Association estimates some 3,700 women in the country have been victims of FGM.
