BASRA, IRAQ - MAY 26: An Iraqi woman walks through a plume of smoke rising from a massive fire at a liquid gas factory as she searches for her husband in the vicinity of the fire in Basra, Iraq, May 26, 2003.  The fire was allegedly started by looters picking through the factory, and residents in the vicinity feared the explosion of the four liquid gas tanks on the premisis.  Weeks after the end of the war, looting continues to be one of the main problems for both Basra and Bagdad cities as coalition forces struggle to get life back to normal.

Photojournalism Daily: Jan. 6, 2015

Jan 06, 2015

Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Marcus Bleasdale's work from Central African Republic for an in-depth account of the country's spiral into bloodshed by Peter Bouckaert of Human Rights Watch, with whom the photographer has covered the country since November 2013. The most recent conflict erupted after the now-disbanded Séléka coalition of Muslim rebels ousted the Christian president in early 2013 and began a vicious campaign of looting, torture and murder, mostly against non-Muslims. Two days of street violence in December 2013 left hundreds dead and shocked the global community into action, with French and African peacekeepers sent in to restore security. But the retaliation by armed militia groups known as anti-balaka bred even more death and, in many cases, targetted the Muslim minority, prompting an exodus into the eastern region and neighboring countries. Bleasdale's images provide an important and harrowing documentation of turmoil that has, in recent months, largely been ignored.
