Syrian Boy Drowned Off Turkey Coast

The world shows its grief and anger over the death of tragic Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi who died off Turkish coast. In harrowing photos that shocked the world, 3-years-old Aylan Kurdi, was seen face down in the sand of Turkey’s Bodrum beach after he drowned alongside his mother Rehan, 35, and brother Galip, five.

The desperate family – who fled the ISIS-besieged Syrian city of Kobane – were on an overcrowded dinghy bound for the Greek island of Kos when it capsized. The boys’ father Abdullah survived.
