What underlies this photo is what war is all about, the loss of innocence, protection, ideals, softness, boyhood, happiness, joy, comfort, security, love, parents, siblings, friends and the right to live with dignity. The expression on his face says it all…………..
A young boy who said he had spent two days in besieged Brega and stolen a vehicle belonging to Moammar Gadhafi's forces in order to return to the rebel side, is questioned by rebel fighters near the front line east of Brega on April 3. Rebel fighters shot the tires out of the vehicle as it sped through the front line but released the boy after listening to his story.
