Small victims for big politics

The body of a migrant child lays on a beach near the Aegean resort of Ayvacik in Turkey. The refugees were trying to reach the Greek island of Lesbos.
Toddlers and young children are among at least 39 refugees who drowned in the Aegean Sea while trying to cross from Turkey to Greece overnight.
They were on an overcrowded smuggler boat that sank just metres off the shore of Ayvacik after hitting rocks.
Photos showed bodies lining beaches and coves, including children who appeared as young as two wearing life jackets and warm winter coats in preparation for the journey their families hoped to make to safety in Europe.
