Berlin (dpa) - The maximum jail term for conducting a female circumcision should be increased to 15 years, the same sentence as for manslaughter, Germany‘s government said Wednesday.

The cabinet resolution means the German parliament would be asked next month to amend the criminal code to make female circumcision a separate crime. Currently, it is treated as causing serious personal injury with a maximum sentence of 10 years.

The procedure is mainly carried out on girls in Africa. German courts have the power to try crimes abroad against German citizens.
