The picture was taken in 2006 in the Democratic Republic of Congo, after Evelyn Amony was rescued. Holding her youngest daughter, she was at a meeting to negotiate with members of the Lord's Resistance Army. The two men, who had also been abducted, are her relatives. The faces of the men and baby are blurred to protect their identities. Courtesy of Erin Baines hide caption
