There are more than 1.2 billion poor people and beggars in the world now. These data are cited in a new report on the situation in the world drafted by the World Bank's experts and timed to coincide with the May 1st holiday which is marked in many countries. According to a RIA Novosti correspondent, the report was made public in Austria Monday. Under this report, the poor people and the beggars are those who live on less than one dollar a day. Ten million babies die every year within five days after their birth. Some 113 million children and adolescents do not go to school. Ethiopia, Burundi and Sierra Leone, where per capita income does not reach 100 dollars a year, are listed among the world's poorest countries. The richest country is Switzerland, where per capita income equals 38,380 dollars a year, says the World Bank's report.
