    Humanity hits the eight-billion mark

    AFP – A baby born somewhere on Tuesday is the world’s eight billionth person, according to a projection by the United Nations (UN).

    “The milestone is an occasion to celebrate diversity and advancements while considering humanity’s shared responsibility for the planet,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in a statement. The UN attributes the growth to human development, with people living longer thanks to improvements in public health, nutrition, personal hygiene and medicine.
