Kim Phuc, known as the “Napalm girl” after a well-known photo of her from the Vietnam war, has received an award in Germany for her work for peace.
Phuc was nine when a South Vietnamese plane dropped napalm bombs on her village in 1972, believing it harboured North Vietnamese troops.
The scene of Phuc running down a road in tears, naked and severely burned was captured by the Associated Press photographer Nick Ut, who won a Pulitzer prize for the image in 1973.
