Aylan Abdullah’s death awakens mankind

LONDON: The images of football supporters across Europe holding banners in support for refugees – who are arriving in a large number on the continent’s shores everyday – have gone viral on the internet.

The images showed supporters holding banners in which the slogan “Refugees welcome” could be read.

They come at a time where the crisis around migrants is worsening, with about 350,000 people reaching the border of the European Union.

Pressure for European leaders to take effective action rose sharply this week after pictures flashed around the world of the body of a Syrian Kurdish toddler washed up on a Turkish resort beach, personalizing the collective tragedy of the refugees.
