Who’s looking out for Afghanistan’s abused boys?

Cradling a massive automatic rifle, his little head encased in an oversized helmet, Wasil Ahmad gazed into the camera with an air of seriousness and self-importance disturbing for a boy his age. In an another photograph -- which also made the social media rounds last year -- the 10-year-old...

Déjà vu time: France’s political dance with the far right

So, the National Front “almost won” the latest elections, sparking yowls of alarm, tortured national introspection and a swell of collective self-flagellation. That was after the Dec. 6 regional elections first round – the first since the deadly Nov. 13 Paris attacks – which saw the far right...

Syria: The Forgotten

Imagine the face of a little boy walking while holding his father’s hand, when suddenly the father plunges onto the ground with a bullet in his head. “Oh my God,” the boy screams, “God, please Baba don’t leave me, no, no please, please don’t leave me this way.” Another bullet shatters the boy’s...

Syria: Geneva 2's tragic charade
