SND34 presents its fourth silver medal to El Comercio of Lima, Peru, in the Spot News Photography category.

Update: This entry was also given a Judges’ Special Recognition award.

From the judges:

Of all the news photos, this one really stood out. The composition is outstanding, but honestly – the photographer put their life in danger to get this shot. The details — the blood on the hands, the crop … the angle really puts you in the photographer’s eye. It makes you scared. I feel his panic. This was the standout of everything we saw.
