'The least diverse selfie ever'

The US politician Paul Ryan has sparked a debate about diversity in Washington politics and "white privilege" after sharing a selfie with a group of interns.

Mr Ryan, who's the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, shared an image on Instagram with the caption "I think this sets the record for the most number of Capitol Hill interns in a single selfie."

But thousands have pointed out that the photo is dominated by white people.
