A man (37) and a woman (27) have been found guilty of performing female genital mutilation on their one-year-old daughter as well as being found guilty of child cruelty.

They pleaded not guilty in court. They claimed that their daughter fell on a toy without wearing a nappy however, according to doctors this story did not match the girls injury.

They will be sentenced on the 20th of December and will be remanded in custody until then.
