One photo, one country, one year

Reuters Logo By By Corinne Perkins, Reuters of Reuters | Slide 1 of 153: AFGHANISTAN: Sharbat Gula, the green-eyed "Afghan Girl" whose 1985 photo in National Geographic became a symbol of her country's wars, arrives to meet with Afghanistan's President Ashraf Ghani in Kabul, Afghanistan November 9, 2016. Pakistan security officials escorted Gula overnight from a Peshawar hospital, where she had been staying since her arrest the previous month for living illegally in Pakistan, and handed her over to Afghan authorities at the Torkham border. Gula's deportation came amid Pakistani pressure to send 2.5 million Afghan refugees back home even though Afghanistan is facing a bloody Taliban insurgency and would struggle to look after so many returnees.
