Swedish photographer Paul Hansen won the 2012 World Press Photo award Friday for newspaper Dagens Nyheter with a picture of two Palestinian children killed in an Israeli missile strike being carried to their funeral.

“This picture is not about the bodies of ‘just’ two children, in the background the body of their father is carried as well. It’s bearing witness of the destruction of a complete family. The mother is the sole survivor, she lost another child in an earlier missile strike.”
