John Walsh of Montana was appointed to his seat in February, and he's preparing to face voters for the first time. The Democrat's bid will likely be complicated by allegations of plagiarism, reported by <em>The New York Times</em>. It seems that in a paper Walsh submitted for his master's degree from the U.S. Army War College, long passages were borrowed without attribution. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 NPR.

That's the encouraging news from a UNICEF report on the controversial practice, presented this week at London's first Girl Summit.<p>The rate has dropped in many of the 29 countries across Africa and the Middle East where FGM is practiced. In Kenya, for example, nearly half the girls age 15 to 19 were circumcised in 1980; in 2010 the rate was just under 20 percent.<p>But there's a sobering side to the report.
