A shop window display of mannequins showing pregnant schoolgirls has shocked shoppers and stirred debate over sex education in Venezuela.

The models with bulging stomaches are dressed in blue uniforms used by schoolchildren in Venezuela until the age of 15.

Two local charities are responsible saying their aim is to draw attention to an adolescent pregnancy rate which they claim is the worst in South America.

One under 18-year-old is said to become pregnant every 23 minutes.
