File photo of Sgt. William Olas Bee, a U.S. Marine coming under Taliban fire in Helmand
Sgt. William Olas Bee, a U.S. Marine from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, has a close call after Taliban fighters opened fire near Garmser in Helmand Province of Afghanistan May in this 18, 2008 file photo. Goran Tomasevic: If I hadn't already been pointing the camera at the Marine when the bullet hit the wall, there is no way I would have been able to react quickly enough to take those pictures.

Moments earlier I had been lazing around in Afghanistan's blistering desert heat, fending off waves of giant ants, wondering when I might get to test my new 24 mm lens.

Gunshots rang out from beyond the perimeter of the compound the U.S. Marines were guarding in the district of Garmser, a Taliban stronghold in Helmand province, the biggest opium-producing region on the planet.

I grabbed my boots and cameras and ran to look. The Marines had spotted some Taliban moving around the compound some 200 meters away. I took a quick look over the wall but couldn't see any Taliban. Then the gunfire began again. The Marines opened up with heavy machine guns. The Taliban answered back with single shots.

I thought I'd better go back and put some trousers on. I also grabbed my flak jacket, helmet and some water. As soon as I got outside the firing erupted again.

Sergeant William Bee was there with his M-16 rifle. He stood up and aimed his rifle over the wall. Suddenly it seemed to explode from an incoming round and Bee was down.

I dropped my cameras and jumped towards him. I felt his head and neck expecting to find blood, but there was none. He was breathing, but unconscious.

I picked up my cameras and shot a few more pictures, then went back to see how Bee was doing. When I found him, he was grinning from ear to ear. It was his lucky day. He hadn't been hit or seriously hurt. REUTERS/Goran Tomasevic/Files (AFGHANISTAN - Tags: CIVIL UNREST TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

A patch that says "come and take it" is seen on the flak jacket worn by member of the "Patriots" Rob Chupp near the U.S.-Mexico border outside Brownsville, Texas September 2, 2014. The "Patriots" are a heavily armed group who patrol the U.S. border with Mexico, trying to deter immigrants from crossing the border illegally. The group, who portray themselves as defending the American way, use a strong display of force to intimidate anyone from making the crossing from Mexico into Texas. To critics, they are vigilantes spoiling for a fight. To the immigrants, they are another barrier to entry and to the U.S. Border Patrol, groups like this can either be a nuisance interfering with their operations or an aide in spotting migrants illegally trying to enter the country.

A relative of one of 12 people abducted in May holds a banner outside the Attorney General of the Republic building in Mexico City August 23, 2013. Mexican authorities have found a mass grave containing the remains of five youths who were among a group of 12 people abducted from a Mexico City club in May, a crime that sparked fears of increasing drug gang violence in the capital. Officials said they had found a total of 13 corpses in a grave covered in cement just outside Mexico City. They were still trying to identify the other eight bodies, which were discovered next to a shotgun, handcuffs and a flak jacket. The banner reads, " We will find, whoever falls."

A man stands next to a truck on which the Vespa scooter belonging to Reuters correspondent Agnieszka Flak is seen after Flak experienced a punctured tyre, some 40 km (25 miles) outside the town of Iringa, during her 9,000-km (5,600-mile) scooter trip from Johannesburg to Dar es Salaam and back, in this picture taken January 13, 2011. Nobody took Flak seriously when she initially took off, as striking out across sub-Saharan Africa on a scooter astounded many of the people she met along the way. Altogether, Flak and her friend passed through six countries of southern and east Africa during their trip. Picture taken January 13, 2011.
