US: The woman whose photograph of her burnt and screaming in pain became the image of the Vietnam War has had her final skin treatment, 50 years after an American bombing raid changed her life forever.
In 1972, a photojournalist captured the moment the then nine-year-old Kim Phuc Phan Thi was seen running down a road, with her body scalded, her clothes torched from her body, following a napalm strike.
The picture won a Pulitzer Prize for Associated Press photographer Nick Ut.
It also earned her the nickname “Napalm Girl” and now 59, Ms Phan Thi has received her final skin treatment after decades of pain from the intense scarring on her torso.
Her wounds were so severe that immediately following the attack doctors thought she would not survive, but after more than a year of treatment, her condition stabilised.
She eventually recovered from her injuries and lived in Vietnam until 1992 before moving to Canada with her husband, where she still lives.
