Description : Wa'ad writhes in intense pain as a Nepalese UN medical doctor checks her condition in the girl's home on the front line in southern Lebanon. She lost her both legs after she and three friends walked by an unexploded shell near her home which suddenly exploded. Wa'ad was 12 years old at the time and now is 19 years old. Her 3 friends were killed. She still has metal shell fragments in her head which cause her extreme pain periodically.
