LONDON - MARCH 3:  Salimata Knight, a survivor from Genital Mutilation is seen on March 3, 2004 in London. The Female Genital Mutilation Act which came into force today will close a loophole in the previous law preventing people taking young girls abroad to carry out female genital mutilation. The Act reinforces existing legislation, criminalizing the offence in the UK by increasing the maximum penalty from five to 14 years' imprisonment. (Photo by Graeme Robertson/Getty Images)
