Pregnancy 'is the biggest killer of teen girls worldwide'

The biggest killer of teenage girls worldwide is pregnancy.

That is the startling conclusion of a report by the charity Save the Children.

It says more than a million girls - some as young as 11 - die or suffer injury through getting pregnant.

In many countries girls marry young and become pregnant before their bodies are ready to bear children.
