Kim Phuc was a girl burned by napalm screaming in pain when Nick Út captured the moment.

At the end of the audience on May 11, 2022, Pope Francis met with American-Vietnamese photojournalist Nick Út and Canadian-Vietnamese Kim Phuc, respectively the author of a famous photograph of a girl burned by napalm during the Vietnam War, and the girl herself, howling in pain.

The two people, who are participating in an exhibition organized on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the photograph taken on June 8, 1972, took advantage of their visit to Rome to offer a copy of the famous photo to the Pontiff.
