I was horrified when first viewing the images accompanying this article: the impulse to keep shooting being stronger than the repulsion of what was happening in front of them being enough to stop and intervene. However , even though its highly unlikely I will ever be in the sort of situation these photojournalists found themselves in, would I behave any different? Finding themselves in circumstances beyond their control and in potential  personal danger their continued action enabled the rest of the world  to be aware of  the injustice and atrocities being committed however uncomfortable they are to view.

This is such  a powerful image . The terror in the mans eyes which in turn are framed by the heavy black boots haunts me.
