LIBERIA-CONFLICT-WOMEN-CHILDREN

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY ZOOM DOSSO Liberian Ruth Flomo, 28, poses on June 13, 2013 in Monrovia. It is over a week since Ruth Flomo was last able to walk, the bullet lodged in her leg an agonizing reminder of the terror of being shot in crossfire during Liberia's bloody civil war 10 years ago. Flomo, then just a teenager, was caught in an exchange of fire between the rebel Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy and troops loyal to ex-president Charles Taylor as the conflict was nearing an end in 2003. The medics in the Monrovia hospital were ill-equipped to deal with gunshot wounds and had to discharge Flomo in the hope that the bullet would work its own way out. Ten years later, it regularly causes her serious pain. AFP PHOTO / STR (Photo credit should read -/AFP/Getty Images)
