Recent scenes of dead bodies, blood, injury and violence in the Middle East and other parts of the world have portrayed a society that’s anything but at peace with itself. The fear for life has crippled human civilization in an era which is testing the heights of development in almost every other sphere.

While it can be disturbing to watch videos and photos of violence, lives of many innocent beings getting affected go rather unnoticed. Pictures of the clashes between the police and the protesters can portray a society that’s ruthless and unruly, but can’t present the damage done to a “civic” society.

Here is a slideshow presenting some of the rare, never-seen pictures that tell the human tale of fear for life.
