Images of drowned toddler enrage Syrian refugees

A Turkish police officer carries a migrant child's dead body off the shores in Bodrum, on September 2, 2015, after a boat carrying refugees sank while trying to reach the Greek island of KosLike millions of others, Yaman was riveted by the image of the toddler, who drowned along with his mother and brother when their boat capsized on a short run from Turkey to the Greek island of Kos and hopes of a new life in Europe. Umm Hussein, a 40-something mother who fled Syria’s war in the central city of Homs to a poor neighbourhood of the Jordanian capital, said the photo was too much for her. “We witnessed the bombing, the destruction… but I couldn’t cope with the picture of that innocent child, whose only fault was to have been born in Syria,” she said, tears welling up in her eyes.
