Titled "War Underfoot", this photograph taken by Carolyn Cole for Los Angeles Times, captured a street completely covered with empty bullet casings, in Monrovia, the Liberian capital. Monrovia was the worst affected region in the Liberian Civil War, as it was the scene of heavy fighting between government soldiers and rebel forces. Businesses were also closed for weeks as the battle raged. The picture shows the devastation caused by the Civil War in Liberia, with special attention to innocent citizens caught in the conflict. Carolyn won Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for a set of pictures, which also contained the one shown here.
