Migrants' Perilous Journey

As the sun rose over Huixtla, Mexico, photographer Adrees Latif snapped a photo of a girl wearing a purple backpack, clutching a doll and hoping to hitch a ride.
"It looks almost like she's going to school," said Latif. But she was one of thousands of Central American migrants fleeing hometowns racked by violence to seek asylum in the United States.
The journey took them across rushing rivers and through thick forests. Migrants woke at 3am to walk 30 to 100 miles to the next town along the road. In Huixtla, thousands of migrants had gathered. "It was a chaotic scene," said Latif. "Trucks pulled up and people rushed to them."
Latif, who emigrated from Pakistan at age 7, spent five months covering the story with 10 other Reuters photographers. The experience left him deeply moved.
"Why would parents want to cross a river that's deep and flowing fast with children in their arms? They're taking extremely high risks to get to the U.S. Why would somebody do that?" said Latif. "America is still the land of opportunity."

Famine in Yemen
The Washington Post
Dec. 31, 2018, Yemen
Lorenzno Tugnoli for the Washington Post
Four years of civil war have pushed Yemen to the brink.
Fighting between Houthi rebels and the Saudi Arabia-backed government has left 70,000 people dead, 3 million displaced and 2 million children on the verge of starvation.
In a hospital in Aden, photographer Lorenzo Tugnoli met 3-year-old Ayesha Ahmed, clutching a snack bar. The malnourished girl weighed 9 pounds -- the size of a newborn. Her family escaped intense fighting in her village to seek treatment for her.
But a local militia took over the hospital, selling off medical supplies for profit. Doctors went on strike. Nurses braved harassment by the militiamen to care for Ayesha and other patients. Eventually, the militia was removed.
Tugnoli doesn't know what happened to Ayesha but plans to return to Yemen. He hopes his photos provoke questions. "The question here is how is it possible that something like this happens, and how is it possible that there is so little interest in a conflict like this?"
