Caption: Hurricane Katrina. Girl screaming as an off-camera policeman aims a rifle at her, under the impression that she is stealing chewing gum from a wrecked convenience store. It was soon found that the owner of the store, who was present, gave people permission to take what they needed. Katrina devastated the Gulf of Mexico coast of the USA when it made landfall on 29th August 2005. New Orleans was worst hit. Levees failed, leading to the flooding of 80% of the city and thousands of deaths. There, looting by armed gangs was a major problem for security services, and the National Guard and Marines were dispatched to restore order. Photographed in Gulfport, Mississippi, USA on 30th August 2005.
