Refugees Flee Myanmar

The assignment left Adnan Abidi shaken. One of seven photographers Reuters sent to cover Rohingya refugees fleeing violence in Myanmar, he said: "I pray nobody sees this again."
Thousands of desperate refugees slogged through the muddy, waist-deep Naf River into Bangladesh. People carried aging parents and children on their shoulders. One woman fainted and fell on Abidi's feet.
Myanmar's violent 2017 campaign to oust Rohingya militants spurred nearly 700,000 Rohingya -- a mostly Muslim minority group in predominantly Buddhist Myanmar -- to escape to refugee camps in Bangladesh. United Nations officials have called Myanmar's actions ethnic cleansing.
At a camp medical center, Abidi shared tea with a man who said his entire family was killed, except for his son, Mohammed Shoaib, 7. The boy removed his shirt to reveal a jagged scar left by a bullet.
"When you see a child like this, you are just shattered," Abidi said. "What did he do to anybody? He's a harmless young kid. Why did he deserve this?"

Ryan M. Kelly
The Daily Progress
Aug. 12, 2017, Charlottesville, Va.
For months, photographer Ryan Kelly had been covering the anger brewing in Charlottesville, Va., over a plan to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
As darkness fell on Aug. 11, 2017, hundreds of white nationalists bearing torches and tear gas marched toward the University of Virginia campus, chanting, "White lives matter!" and "Jews will not replace us!"
The next day, the Unite the Right rally exploded in violence. Protesters and counterprotesters traded punches and swung clubs. By noon, the city had declared a state of emergency.
Kelly followed counterprotesters as they began to disperse. Suddenly, a gray Dodge Challenger plowed through the crowd. Bodies flew. Heather Heyer, 32, was killed; 19 others were injured. The driver fled but was quickly arrested.
"I wish the attack didn't happen," Kelly said. "I wish I didn't have to witness it. But since it did happen, and I was on that street, I'm proud this photo exists so that the world can never forget exactly what violence and hatred looks like."
