The Haunting Images of the Refugee Crisis.

with one comment

At least 12 Syrians trying to reach Greece have drowned off Turkey after the boats they were travelling in sank.

An image of one of the victims – a young boy lying face down on the beach – has sparked an international outcry over the human cost of the crisis.

The picture, released by a Turkish news agency, is trending worldwide on Twitter under the #KiyiyaVuranInsanlik (“humanity washed ashore”) hashtag.

Thousands of migrants have died this year trying to reach Europe by sea.

The 2 refugee brothers who drowned alongside each other and one’s body washed up on Turkey’s shore today. This little boy’s name was Aylan Kurdi. He was only three and his brother five years old. The were Syrians from Kobanê.
