Former Model Waris Dirie Reported Missing


From AOL comes this disturbing news Former Model Waris Dirie Reported Missing.

Waris was a victim of female genital mutilation (FGM) in her native Somalia and campaigned against the practice of FGM. Her disappearance comes only a week after the dead body of Katoucha Niane, a former model from Guinea who also campaigned against FGM, was found floating in the Seine.


Coincidence or not? While it's too late for Katoucha, let us hope that everything is done to find Waris - hopefully alive and in good health.
