A Swede won the 2012 World Press Photo prize for a photograph of two Palestinian children who were killed during Israel's operation in Gaza.

Paul Hansen, a photographer for the daily Dagens Nyheter, won the prize on Friday, with his photo of two children who were killed in an Israeli missile strike. The picture shows a group of men marching the dead bodies through a narrow street in Gaza City. The victims, a brother and sister, are wrapped in white cloth with only their faces showing.

World Press Photo, one of photojournalism's most prestigious contests, issued awards in nine categories to 54 photographers of 32 nationalities.

The photo was captured during November's eight-day military operation mounted by Israel against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip in response to repeated missile attacks on Israeli civilians.
