‘Napalm Girl’ Photo 40 Years Later

Associated Press staff photographer Nick Ut shows his famous photograph of the "Napalm Girl" at Liberty Baptist Church in Newport Beach, Calif., Sunday. Ut's iconic black-and-white image of Kim Phuc after a napalm attack in 1972 communicated the horrors of the Vietnam War in a way words could never describe. But beneath the photo lies a lesser-known story of a dying child brought together by chance with a young photographer. A moment captured in the chaos of war that would serve as both her savior and her curse on a journey to understand life's plan for her. Story here. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
