Infants still dying at hospital in India's West Bengal
Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on 25 Jan 2012 Dozens of babies have died in the past two weeks at a hospital in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal. The latest deaths in the district of Malda come after reports of 25 babies dying in a six-day period in November at the same facility.

Mothers in the region are having children as early as the age of 12 or 13 years old, the government says.
