Facebook has reversed its decision to block a famous photograph the Vietnam War its website. The photo is a naked, 9-year-old Vietnamese girl and other terrified children running from a napalm attack in South Vietnam. The napalm badly burnt her back. The iconic photograph was taken Associated Press photographer Nick Ut and won a Pulitzer Prize photo-journalism. However, Facebook banned the photo its site because the child in the photo is naked. Facebook got a lot complaints after the ban. Even the president of Norway, Erna Solberg, criticised Facebook. She said the photo was an important part history and that Facebook was editing history erasing the image.
Ms Solberg explained why she was so angry. She said: "They must see the difference editing out child pornography and editing history." She wrote her own Facebook page: "I want my children and other children to grow in a society where history is taught as it was." After Facebook decided to allow the photo on its pages, a spokesperson made a comment, saying: "An image a naked child would normally be presumed to violate our community standards, and some countries might even qualify as child pornography. In [the case the 'Napalm Girl' photograph], we recognize the history and global importance this image in documenting a particular moment time."
