TUZ KHURMATU, IRAQ - AUGUST 25:  Sheelan Anwar Omer, 7, continues to cry after a female circumcision was preformed on her. More than 60 percent of women in Kurdish areas of northern Iraq have been circumcised, according to a study conducted this year. In at least one Kurdish territory, 95 percent of women have undergone the practice, which human rights groups call female genital mutilation.    Photographed August, 25, 2008 in Tuz Khurmatu, Iraq.
