The Progressive Socialist Party denounced as “barbaric” the genital mutilation that took place in Lebanon’s town of Baysour, of Mt Lebanon east of the capital Beirut.

PSP said in a statement issued on Wednesday that it followed up the incident with the concerned town officials and agencies.

“The party has also requested that the perpetrators be arrested and tried before the competent court,” the PSP added.

An-Nahar reported that Rabih , a Sunni, 39, and Roudaina, a Druze ,20, met on Facebook and were married in July against the wishes of the bride’s family. The family of Roudaina attacked her husband Rabih and mutilated his genitals.

Marriage between members of the Druze community and non-Druze are rare and officially banned
