Katoucha Niane - 1960–2008

A corpse pulled from the Siene river yesterday has been positively indentified as the body of French Supermodel and activist, Kayoucha Niane. She had been declared missing since February 4th, 2008. Police believe that Niane, last seen after a dinner party, may have been intoxicated and fell into the water near her riverboat home and drowned.

Niane used her status as a top model and media-described muse for world famous designer Yves Saint Laurent, to become an out-spoken activist against the practice of female circumcision, having been circumcised herself at age nine. She was the mother of three children.

Hey Professor Tracy,

This is so sad and unfortunate. Thanks for sharing. I didn't really pay much attention to her before. I feel bad about that. Oh, I also started personal blogging. I might blog about her and her contributions. May she rest in peace.
