Moroccans lie on the ground in memory of drowned Syrian toddler

1 min

Dozens of Moroccans lay on a beach in Rabat, Morocco, on Monday, to pay tribute to Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi, who was found dead on a Turkish beach last week.

Dressed in red and blue, around 30 people re-created the heart-wrenching scene when Aylan was photographed lying face down in the sand, triggering an international outcry over the Syrian refugee crisis.

Three-year-old Aylan Kurdi drowned in an ill-fated journey to Greece while fleeing the Syrian war with his family.

According to media reports, an estimated four million people have fled war-torn Syria, seeking asylum in other countries.
