UAE passes measure mandating breast feeding

ABU DHABI -- An English language newspaper in the United Arab Emirates reports that the country's legislative body has passed a measure that would require mothers to breastfeed.

The National reports that the Federal National Council passed a clause in the Child Rights law that would allow husbands to sue wives that did not breastfeed.

The law apparently applies to children up to two years old.
