Great Photojournalism
Klavs Bo ChristensenSalman, 36, from Baghdad has been in Sayeda Zainab for 8 months, in Sayeda Zainab, Damascus, Syria, on Tuesday, June 13, 2007. He has an immune disease which started after visiting Basra in 1991. Some articles say that the disease is a result of Salman being exposed to the depleted uranium shells used by Americans in the first Gulf War. The disease hit his skin and because of the way he looks, he can't get any employment here in Syria. "What hurts me even more is that people look away or point at me". The UN is trying their best to help Salman. He is suicidal due to the lack of help he feels he is receiving.
