A girl who allegedly underwent female genital mutilation in Australia imagined she was a princess in a garden as the procedure happened, a court has heard.
Three people are being prosecuted over the alleged FGM of the girl, known as C1, and her younger sister, known as C2. A woman known as KM is charged over allegedly carrying out the procedure while the mother, A2, is charged with being present while it is carried out.
The supreme court of New South Wales was played a police interview with C1 which took place in August 2012. In the interview C1 told a social worker and a police officer about undergoing the "khatna".
