The drowned toddler seen lying on a
Turkish beach in a photo that sparked shock around the world on Thursday
has been identified as three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, whose five-year-old
brother Galip and mother Rehan also died when their boat capsized.
Images of Aylan, showing the little boy wearing a bright red T-shirt and
shorts and lying face down in the surf on a beach near the resort town
of Bodrum, went viral on social media and appeared on the front pages of
newspapers in several countries. Aylan and four more children were
among at least 12 presumed Syrian refugees who died trying to reach the
Greek island of Kos on Wednesday.
