GIRL BATHES IN WATER FROM LEAKING TAP IN DHAKA.
A girl in the Bangladesh capital Dhaka bathes in water leaking from a giant pipe on March 22, which has been designated World Water Day. Water has been in short supply in this city of nine million people, forcing many residents to drink and bathe from derelict surface water sources, including from the river. Water experts have said one billion people worldwide lack safe drinking water and three billion people do not have adequate sanitation.
