Facebook has reversed its to block a famous of the Vietnam War on its website. The photo is of a naked, 9-year-old Vietnamese girl and other children running away from a napalm in South Vietnam. The napalm badly burnt her . The photograph was taken by Associated Press photographer Nick Ut and won a Pulitzer Prize for photo-journalism. However, Facebook banned the photo from its because the child in the photo is naked. Facebook got a lot of after the ban. Even the president of Norway, Erna Solberg, criticised Facebook. She said the photo was an part of history and that Facebook was editing by erasing the image.

Ms Solberg explained why she was so . She said: "They must see the between editing out child pornography and out history." She wrote on her own Facebook page: "I want my children and other children to grow up in a where history is taught as it was." After Facebook decided to allow the photo back on its pages, a made a comment, saying: "An image of a naked child would be presumed to violate our community , and in some countries might even qualify as pornography. In [the case of the 'Napalm Girl' photograph], we recognize the history and importance of this image in documenting a particular in time."
