【更新时间】4 May 2015
This must be one of the most shared photoson social media in the wake of the earthquake in Nepal last week.
The haunting picture of two young childrenhugging each other, the little girl clinging to her brother as if to look forshelter from the outside world, the boy's scared eyes…
It creates a truly heart-wrenching image.
In less than a week, this photo has goneviral on Facebook and Twitter, credited as "Two-year-old sister protectedby four-year-old brother in Nepal".
There have been attempts to look for thebrother and sister among the earthquake's victims, even calls for donations.
Only, the photo was taken nearly a decadeago in northern Vietnam.
Its real author, Vietnamese photographer NaSon Nguyen, told the BBC: "I took this picture in October 2007 in Can Ty,a remote village in Ha Giang province".
它的真实作者，越南籍摄影师Na Son Nguyen告诉BBC：“我与2007年10月在Can Ty拍下这张照片，那个地方是河江省的一个偏远村庄。”
"I was passing through the village butwas stopped by the scene of two Hmong children playing in front of their housewhile their parents were away working in the field."
"The little girl, probably two yearsold, cried in the presence of a stranger so the boy, who was maybe three yearsold or so, hugged his sister to comfort her."
"It was both moving and cute, so Iquickly made a shot."
Na Son published the photo on his personalblog and was surprised to discover three years ago that it had been sharedamong Vietnamese Facebook users as a photo of "abandoned orphans".
"Some people even weaved intricatetales about the kids," he said, "like their mother had died and theirfather left them".
It didn't stop there. He later found thephoto with credits such as "two Burmese orphans" and even"victims of the civil war in Syria".
Na Son said he made efforts to clarify andto claim copyright of the photo but with little success.
"This is perhaps my most shared photobut unfortunately in the wrong context
