NATO meets in London today to commemorate its 70th anniversary. Set up in 1949 to provide collective security against the Soviet Union, NATO’s role has since shifted. In this photo, children in Kosovo show off their hand drawn tattoos of union flags and British Army badges (1999).
The NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR) entered Kosovo in 1999 after a controversial bombing campaign which forced Serbian forces to withdraw. Although Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008, around 3,500 NATO troops remain in country to this day.
