Pakistani Nargis Shah, 13, enjoys playing on a swing along with other children on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan, Monday, Aug. 15, 2011.

A mother mourns the death of her son at the Banadir hospital on August 16, 2011 in Mogadishu, Somalia. The hospital has been overwhelmed by new patients, as sickness spreads through camps for people displaced by drought and famine. The US government estimates that some 30,000 children have died in southern Somalia in the last 90 days from the crisis.

Two naval officers react outside for services for U.S.Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Michael Joseph Strange at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011, in Philadelphia. Strange was assigned to the Navy SEAL team whose Chinook helicopter was shot down Aug. 6 by a rocket-propelled grenade in what has become the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan.
