To caption as "The Child?" or "The Vulture?"

This emaciated child is crawling towards a United Nations food camp, located a kilometer away. The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat her. The picture was taken in 1993 in Sudan, which won the photographer Kevin Carter the Pulitzer Prize. But, Kevin was so much traumatized by this horrific image that he committed suicide in 1994 soon after receiving the award. 15 years have passed since then, but the scene is still the same (worse in fact) - in war torn countries around the world...........just the characters are different.
