'Algiers, Algeria - December 7, 2012: People walking near the base of the Martyr's Memorial (Maqam Echahid), located on the heights of Algiers. This monument was erected in memory of those who died in the Algerian War of Independence that raged from 1954 to 1962. The monument was completed in 1982, 20 years after Algeria gained its independence from France. The three arms, representing three palm leaves, shelter the eternal flame that burns beneath the monument.'
