The Afghan Children of War

At the time of writing this post, the war in Afghanistan has been going for 11 years, 9 months, 3 weeks and 5 days.

Imagine how many children there have grown up only knowing war?

Below are selected photographs — just some of the brilliant work by photojournalists — from the collection published in The Atlantic this week (warning, many are beautiful, but many are upsetting).
