World Press Photo of the Year 2011

Samuel Aranda from Spain has won the World Press Photo of the Year 2011 for the above image of a woman holding a wounded relative in her arms. The photo was taken inside a mosque used as a field hospital by demonstrators against the rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, during clashes in Sanaa, Yemen on 15 October 2011.

Jurors said the photo captured multiple facets of the "Arab Spring" uprisings across the Middle East last year. It was taken at a field hospital inside a mosque in Sanaa on October 15.

The winning photo was selected from 101,254 images submitted by 5,247 photographers from 124 countries.
