The Picture That Has Shamed Argentina...

A shocking picture has emerged of a tiny girl on her hands and knees licking water from a dirty puddle during a 100F heatwave in a poverty stricken area of Argentina.  

The little girl, from the indigenous Mbya Guarani community is said to beg for money with other youngsters during the day in the city of Posadas in the country's north-east.

She is shown quenching her thirst in the midday sun in a picture that has sparked outrage across South America and Spain. 
The image was taken by a local journalist and posted online by voluntary worker Migue Ríos.
