The Loss of Three-Year Old Syrian Refugee, Aylan Kurdi; Turkish Coast, Sept. 2015

Taken on 2015-09-04

Photographs documenting from the discovery of the body of Aylan Kurdi to his funeral and burial alongside his mother and brother. Some of the photos within the report are graphic. These photos serve as an example of the power of the internet, as due to the viral nature of the photographs of the body of Aylan which were printed in many newspapers globally, there is a large press contingent at his funeral. However, he and his family are only a handful amongst the many thousands more who have died already, or who are likely to perish, in attempting to flee the conflict in Syria.
