A girl from the minority Yazidi sect, fleeing the violence in the Iraqi town of Sinjar, rests at the Iraqi-Syrian border crossing in Fishkhabour

I hope to write a full post next time round but there has been some really great photography coming out of the Middle East right now and especially with the Yezidi refugees. This is probably so because they and the Kurds are very accessible. The above photo was posted by the German publication, Spiegel Online. I find this refugee child’s photo compelling. I had to share it.
