Meeting the world’s six-billionth person

As planet’s population reaches seven billion, Al Jazeera visits Bosnian boy born in 1999.

According to UN estimates the Earth’s seven-billionth inhabitant has just been born.

In fact it has only taken a little more than a decade for us to go from six to seven billion.
