A four-year-old girl, named Hudea, is said to have thrown her hands up in surrender when photojournalist pointed his camera at her and she mistook it for a weapon.

The people sharing it were moved by the fear in the child's eyes, as she seems to staring into the barrel of a gun.

 It wasn't a gun, of course, but a camera, and the moment was captured for all to see.

But who took the picture and what is the story behind it? BBC Trending have tracked down the original photographer - Osman Sağırlı - and asked him how the image came to be, BBC reports.

The moment was captured in 2012 when Osman worked with humanitarian relief group IHH, but has recently resurfaced after someone posted it on Reddit.
