Sadaatullah, 7, holds a photograph of his father Abdul Sameh, who was killed in a suicide attack, in Kabul September 19, 2011. Policeman Abdul Sameh drew his gun when he saw a suicide bomber approaching the Kabul base he was paid to protect. They fired at each other and Sameh brought down his man, but took a bullet to the head himself. The shot was fatal. Hundreds of Afghan police officers are killed each year, but Sameh's self-sacrificing heroism in the line of duty was rare. Picture taken September 19, 2011.
