Photos of the Day - May 16, 2013
Mohammed Wazir sits with his only surviving son, Habib Shahin, 3, in Kandahar, Afghanistan on Monday, April 22, 2013 as he talks about March 11, 2012 when he says a U.S. soldier burst into his family's home. Wazir returned to his home that morning to find 11 members of his family dead, their bodies partially burned. The youngest among the dead was his one year old daughter Palawan Shah. U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales of Lake Tapps, Washington, is accused of the killings. Bales has not entered a plea, but his lawyers have not disputed his involvement in the killings. The Army is seeking the death penalty. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)
