A Little Boy’s Body that Surfaced at Turkish Beach
The photograph of a little boy’s body that surfaced at a Turkish beach is heart-rending. The three-year-old seems to be happily lying down on sand in red T-shirt and shorts at sea-shore but he lies there lifeless. A ghastly incident in which Syrian refugees in two boats drowned while migrating to a Greek island took place, only 9 of the total 23 people survived. The toddler Aylan lying dead has left many who have seen the photograph heart-broken.
Many families tried to migrate from Syria to avoid the crisis and relieve themselves from the cruel activities of ISIS. Syrian town of Kobani is the site of fierce fighting between Islamic State insurgents and Kurdish forces. Liz Sly, the Washington Post Beirut Bureau chief posted Aylan’s picture over internet.
