Drowned Syrian toddler laid to rest

  • A Syrian toddler whose lifeless body was found on a Turkish beach was laid to rest on Friday along with his brother and mother.

    Three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, who had drowned along with his mother Rehan and his five-year-old brother Galip while trying to reach the island of Kos in Greece, were buried in their hometown of Kobane.

    The three bodies were flown to a city near Turkey's border with Syria, from where they were taken to the border town of Suruc and thence to Kobane. Legislators from Turkey accompanied the brothers' father Abdullah Kurdi to Kobane. (Source: IANS)
