Gaddafi bodyguards subjected to genital mutilation
The female bodyguard contingent of Gaddafi who were known as "Sweet 72" or "Killer Beauties" were compelled to undergo Female Genital Mutilation [FMG].
[The bodyguards] were said to swear an oath that they would give their lives for him and it was claimed they never left his side, night or day. A special training college [put] the recruits through a tough physical program and girls who did not drop out emerged as trained killers, experts in firearms and martial arts.
[D]espite his insistence that his guards were chaste, rumors abounded that he was demanding their sexual favors. By rotation, all of the members of "Sweet 72" or "Killer Beauties" were having sexual [relations] with the Libyan autocrat.
Female Genital Mutilation, the term used for removal of all or just part of the external parts of the female genitalia, is a crime in the eyes of international law.
