Nearly 100,000 women in Britain have undergone female genital mutilations

How is this possible in 2012 in the UK?

'According to research every year up to 6,000 girls in London are at risk of the potentially fatal procedure, and more than 22,000 in the UK as a whole. The Metropolitan Police said since 2008, it had received 166 reports of people who fear they are at risk of FGM but it has failed to bring forward a single perpetrator. Only two doctors have ever been struck off by The General Medical Council since 1980.'
