Courtesy of gettyimages this most famous and described as iconic image  from the Sino-Japanese War. A child in the bombed-out railway station of Shanghai after a Japanese air raid. Denounced by some [Japanese] if not a staged photograph at the least embellished!

"'Critics have suggested that [the video] is part of a propaganda war, aimed at creating a 'humanitarian' excuse for Western countries to become involved in Syria,'" [Russian Times]
