Circumcised girls `left without care'

Hundreds of women and girls, some as young as six, are suffering from infections following a female circumcision ceremony in Sierra Leone and are receiving only limited medical care, a British nurse said.

Like all foreigners, the nurse, Gloria Tak Ching Yu, is barred from entering the ceremonial site outside the capital Freetown, but she said aid workers had been sending local health workers into the area with medicine and directions on how to treat the wounded. AP - Freetown
