BAHAU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - An 11-year-old girl might have become the youngest mother in the country when she gave birth to a baby boy at a private clinic near here on Wednesday morning (Aug 5).

Jempol OCPD Supt Hamzah Alias said the girl's grandmother took her to a private clinic when she complained of abdominal pains.

She was in for a shock when the doctors informed her that the girl was actually experiencing labour pains.

"Preliminary investigations revealed that the girl lived with her parents in Bahau. We are investigating the matter," he said.
