What kind of BLOODY world do we live in!

Peace seems to have sunk in a quagmire of conflicts.

Out of the world's population of over 7 billion, 1.6 million annually fall victim to bombings and other acts of terror while nearly 50 million languish in refugee camps. Globally, more than nine people die every minute from injuries or violence.

From Syria to Iraq to Central Africa, the bloodshed continues unabated. The ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza and the recent shooting down of the Malaysian Airlines flight in Ukraine by pro-Russia rebels has left the world shell shocked.

Here are photographs from conflict zones around the world. If you don’t have the stomach for it, do not go further.

We start off with this photograph of a resident carrying a wounded child injured by what activists claim was a car explosion in central Douma, eastern al-Ghouta, near Damascus on July 19.
