This heartbreaking image of an amputee in Yemen has earned Mirror photographer Philip Coburn a commendation in a major competition.
Salah Al Wahbei, nine, had lost his leg after standing on a landmine in the war-torn country.
Philip took the picture last year in his first frontline war assignment since losing both his own legs in a blast while working in Afghanistan in 2010.
The image of Salah in the hospital was awarded a “Remarkable Artwork” commendation in the Documentary and Photojournalism section of the 2020 Siena International Photo Awards.
Philip said: “It is always nice to get recognition for pictures I am proud of.
“I found it particularly poignant to photograph this brave lad.
“Not only is he is the same age as my youngest son, James, but I too have lost limbs so I can empathise with his plight, both physical and mental.”
