Mideast Egypt Grieving Children Photo Essay

In this picture taken Feb. 8, 2015, 10-year-old Abanoub Samaan Nazmy stands on the balcony at his home in the Manshiet Nasr neighborhood of Cairo, Egypt. Abanoub lost his father to suspected military snipers as he protested in March 2011 over the burning of a church. Abanoub says he wants justice: “I want to be a police officer to avenge my father.” Psychiatrist Eman Gaber, who leads a rehabilitation program for traumatized children says, “when a child loses a parent, a relative, a friend or a person he likes or knows, maybe he wants the killer or killers to feel the loss he feels.” (AP Photo/Hamada Elrasam)
