After the picture of the three-year-old Aylan Kurdi’s lifeless body washed ashore on a Turkish beach and shook many souls, people in Morocco have finally decided to pay a worthwhile tribute to the toddler.
In Morocco, dozens of people paid tribute to Aylan on a Rabat beach on Monday, 7 September, by re-enacting the tragic scene of when his body was found on the beach.
Also some Palestinians decided to pay their share of the tribute by building a sand sculpture of the child on a beach in the Gaza strip.
The size of the sculpture measuring a few metres in length portrayed Aylan in the same position he was found with his red and blue costume.
This boy was among at least 11 other Syrians who died attempting to journey by sea on an overcrowded dinghy to the Greek island of Kos.
Among the dead were five children and a woman. Another 15 people were rescued and the coastguard, backed by helicopters, was continuing its search for three more who were still missing, Mashable reports.
