Poor sex education causing abandoned baby crisis in Malaysia

Young Malaysians are being encouraged to attend sex education classes outside school, in a bid to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies in the country.

Twenty-six babies were abandoned by young women in the first three months of 2014. The majority of the infants were illegitimate.

The BBC's Jennifer Pak visited a shelter for unmarried mothers, where they "hide" until they give birth.
