Agence France-Presse photographer, Massoud Hossaini, took a photo on December 6th, 2011 that stunned the world. Known as the “Girl in the Green Dress” it shows an Afghan Shia Muslim girl, Tarana Akbari, crying over the dying and injured following explosions during a religious ceremony at the Abul Fazel shrine in Kabul. 

To mark the Shiite holy day of Ashura, Tarana wore her best green dress. In a flash, she lost seven family members, including her little brother, Shoaib.

Massoud Hossaini went on to win the most prestigious US journalism prize, but the glory of the Pulitzer cannot dissipate the memories of pain and fear he suffered that day.
