Children wait in a queue to collect water distributed by the army at the Jatrabari area in Dhaka April 10, 2010. Bangladesh deployed troops to distribute drinking water on Wednesday among the capital's more than 12 million people, after lawmakers had warned that growing public discontent over a water crisis could leave to unrest. A falling water table and lack of power to run water pumps have caused a serious shortage of drinking water in Dhaka, with hundreds of residents marching in the streets daily with empty pitchers and demanding government action.

A Roma girl sucks on a pacifier in the Gypsy shantytown outside Ozd, northeastern Hungary, in this March 6, 2010 file picture. The scenario is classic. Hungary's economy is in crisis, its large Roma minority is an easy scapegoat, and a far-right party blaming "Gypsy crooks" and "welfare spongers" is set to be the big winner. If opinion polls are right, the nationalist Jobbik party has a chance of becoming the second biggest party in parliament after an election on April 11 and 25, denying the centre-right favourites Fidesz a possible two-thirds majority.

Residents of a squatter camp for poor white South Africans line up for a communal meal at Coronation Park in Krugersdorp, March 12, 2010. A shift in racial hiring practices and the recent global economic crisis means many white South Africans have fallen on hard times. Researchers now estimate some 450,000 whites, of a total white population of 4.5 million, live below the poverty line and 100,000 are struggling just to survive in places such as Coronation Park, a former caravan camp currently home to more than 400 white squatters.
