NEWSP_130605_01.JPG: 2013 Breaking News: A Son's Sorrow:
Photographer Rodrigo Abd found the story of the Syrian civil war in the face of a child.
At a graveyard in the rebel stronghold of Idlib, Abd joined mourners who came to bury husbands and fathers killed by government troops. As family members wailed, Adb photographed a grief-stricken boy in the crowd. The boy's name was Ahmed, and his father had been killed by a sniper.
Government troops began closing in on Idlib. Fearing he would be captured or killed, Abd crept in the darkness past government checkpoints to flee to safety in Turkey.
Adb was one of five Associated Press photographers who shared the Pulitzer Prize for their coverage in Syria. "For me, it was really important to put a face on the casualties," he said. "How they suffer, how they cry because of this conflict."
NEWSP_130605_14.JPG: 2013 Feature: Inside a Sniper's Nest:
In the brutal Syrian war, snipers and tanks control the streets. Both sides rely heavily on snipers to spot and pin down the enemy. In Aleppo, freelance photographer Javier Manzano hoped he would not be a target as he darted across the streets and alleys. "I put my head down and ran," he said.
Manzano entered a dark room thick with dust. Shafts of sunlight shone through bullet holes in the metal walls of the sniper's nest. Two Syrian rebel soldiers were on alert, one poised to fire.
While in Syria, Manzano witnessed children "split in half by mortar shells" and civilians killed in a town square bombed by government planes. "These are images I do not want to revisit," he said. "You should not have to see the same massacre happening over and over again for two years."

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
