A scandal broke out in a school in Mexico after a mother exposed a video where her underaged son is seen participating in sexual acts with two other boys. The video is shot in a classroom in a school in the southern Mexican state of Campeche.
The video shows three boys having sex, one boy filming and a fifth one watching, according to the Mexican Spanish-language newspaper Milenio. The kids implicated are all 12 years-old and in the sixth grade.
The video is graphic showing one of the boys performing oral sex to one of his classmates and having anal sex with a third one. The video is over a minute long.
State Education Department spokesman confirmed the existence of the video.
"It is real, the case is real, the video exists," said Omar Kantun State Education Department spokesman according to the Associated Press. "The Education Department is very concerned."
Kantun said the boys are currently receiving psychological counseling.
According to Milenio the mother of one of the boys discovered the video in her son's cellphone and she filed a complaint for investigation in the Office of The Attorney General, hoping to find out who participated and who -- if anyone -- gave orders to the minors to have sex on camera.
Sergio Rosado Rodríguez, secretary of the attorney general of Campeche, Renato Sales Heredia, said the case was filed with the agency specialized in justice for minors. The investigation of the case began on May 4th.
The incident is not specific to Mexico. Similar cases have been reported in the U.S. this year.
Earlier in 2012, news broke of similar case where two students had engaged in sexual relations in a classroom while the teacher was present in a school in Indianapolis according to WTHR, an Indianapolis News Station. Although the occurrence was kept secret for months, Warren Township Associate Superintendent Jeff Swensson confirmed the case to be true.
In early February, two dozen 5th graders at Washington Elementary School in New Ulm, Minnesota were caught playing a game called "rape tag," where children "tagged" each other by grabbing other students' private parts. The "game" was discovered by a mother on her child's facebook page.

TO GO WITH AFP STORY 'Bangladesh-health-prostitution,FEATURE' by Shafiq Alam A Bangladeshi sex worker takes an Oradexon tablet in a government-registered brothel in Faridpur, some 100 kilometres (60 miles) outside Dhaka on June 20, 2010. Whenever Bangladeshi brothel owner Rokeya, 50, signs up a new sex worker she gives them a course of steroid drugs often used to fatten cattle. For older sex workers, tablets work well, said Rokeya, but for younger girls of 12 to 14 -- who are normally sold to the brothel by their families -- injections are more effective.

A 12 year-old prostitute cries in a medical center in Kinshasa on November 7, 2010 after she was stoned by an other child prostitute. Child prostitutes earn about 2000 Congolese Francs (2,2 USD) for a sexual intercourse. More than 20,000 children live in the street of Kinshasa, a city of about 10 million. About a third have been accused of witchcraft and rejected by their families; a recent development in a disintegrated Congolese society undermined by poverty.
