Poverty levels fall in Latin America

Rising household incomes reduce poverty levels but region's wealth gap is still largest in world.

    Poverty in Latin America is at its lowest level in 20 years, according to the UN.

    This can chiefly be attributed to an increase in household income, but that progress is hindered by inequality.

    Latin America continues to have the biggest gap between rich and poor in the world.
