The bullet that hit Ko Phyo severed three arteries. The soldier who fired the shot removed it with a knife, and a local policeman he knew took him to a military hospital, a journey that took more than two hours, he said. "I started feeling the pain and I couldn't bear it. I told them to cut off my leg immediately. They cut it on the seventh day." REUTERS/Stringer SEARCH "PHYO YANGON" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Generation Crisis: young Syrians come of age in a decade of conflict
Ghenwa, 21, a trainee flight attendant, poses for a photograph in her room in Damascus, Syria, April 7, 2021. The freedom to travel was the main reason Ghenwa decided to train as an air hostess, having dropped out of university where she was studying architecture. "I'm Syrian and I can't travel at the moment except through this opportunity," said Ghenwa. "It's the only opportunity that makes me feel I can move faster... to feel the freedom of borders."
