ABSTRACT
PUFFING on a cigarette, a Kalashnikov AK-47 slung awkwardly across his little shoulders, seven-year-old Ahmed stands at a makeshift barricade in Syria. He is one of the youngest fighters to be swept into his country's civil war and something in his blank expression seems to hint at horrors that no child of his age should ever have to witness.
