RUSSIAN MEDIC EXAMINES A JUVENILE DELINQUENT AT DETENTION CENTRE IN
A Russian medic examines a juvenile delinquent (R) as a policeman looks
on at a children's detention centre in Moscow, January 31, 2002. The
boy is one of thousands of children living on the frozen streets of
Moscow, sleeping in pipes, commuter trains or parked buses, left to
fend for themselves after post-Soviet social and economic
disintegration pushed many families to the brink of distitution.
