World Press Photo of the Year 2013 by Paul Hansen | Dagens Nyheter

 

The international jury of the 56th annual World Press Photo Contest has selected a picture by Paul Hansen of the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter as the World Press Photo of the Year 2012. The picture shows a group of men carrying the bodies of two dead children through a street in Gaza City. They are being taken to a mosque for the burial ceremony while their father’s body is carried behind on a stretcher. Two-year-old Suhaib Hijazi and his three-year-old brother Muhammad were killed when their house was destroyed by an Israeli missile strike. The picture was made on 20 November 2012 in Gaza City, Palestinian Territories.

The Swiss Magnum photographer Dominic Nahr won the 3. Prize in the category General News Singles with his picture, taken for Time Magazine, of a Sudan Armed Forces soldier lying dead in a pool of oil next to a leaking oil facility. He was killed during heavy fighting with southern Sudanese SPLA troops, after they entered the northern Sudan oil town during a brief but bloody border war between the two countries, 17 april 2012.
