A mother has been banned from taking her child abroad, to avoid the risk of female genital mutilation (FGM).
The British woman, in her 20s, converted to Islam after meeting the girl's father in an Egyptian hotel, London's High Court was told.
The one-year-old was born in England and her mother planned to take her to Egypt regularly to visit relatives.
But the judge said the "real risk" she would be subjected to FGM meant she must stay in the UK until she turns 16.
The case was brought to court by Hertfordshire County Council after a health visitor grew concerned about the child's welfare.
