Napalm Girl (Vietnam)

This picture of Phan Thị Kim Phúc (born 1963) was taken when she was 9 after she was severely burnt during a napalm attack on her village on 8 June 1972.

Taken by Nick Út (who earned a Pulitzer Prize for the photograph), this photograph became one the most remebered images of the Vietnam War
