Details After the death of her husband, Jane Kuria and her three children came to the United States from to seek asylum because she believed her opposition against Female Genital Mutilation would endanger them. On the morning of August 1, 2007, Jane's sister-in-law, Pauline Thande, was concerned as any calls to the Kuria's house went unanswered.
