Iraqi children are eating from trash cans despite the country's huge revenues from oil, a video posted online shows Monday.
The footage shows a small kid, who is identified as Hassan, and a small girl, apparently his sister, complaining from their deteriorating economic situation that prompted them to eat from garbage.

Analysts say such a crisis has stemmed from corruption that went rampant in the country.
Iraqi premier Haider Al-Abadi has been making a myriad of promises on fighting corruption and cracking down on those suspected in such cases. But he has gone nowhere.
Speaker of the Iraqi parliament Salem al-Jabouri said the government was unable to wipe out corruption from the country.
