If these extraordinarily powerful images of a dead Syrian child washed up on a beach don’t change Europe’s attitude to refugees, what will?

The pictures show a small Kurdish boy lying face down in the sand on a Turkish beach as an official stands over him.

The boy named Aylan Kurdi, pictured here being carried by the official, is one of 11 Syrian refugees feared dead after they drowned trying to cross the Mediterranean on two boats bound for the Greek island of Kos.

BCD81: Bụi Ðỏ Ngày Xưa [vp VNCH]

"Nơi quê hương nghe lòng đà khắc khoải;

Tên quê nhà ai lại gọi ra;

Âm vang tê tái lòng ta"

Brave Yezidi Hero freed his girl-friend from ISIS captivity :-)

Brave Yezidi Hero freed his girlfriend from ISIS captivityThey met each other 2 years ago in Shingal at the most important Yezidi holiday “feast in honor of God”. On the pilgrimage, Ali (22) and Viyan (20) saw for the first time. “I knew from the beginning that Viyan is the right one,” says Ali. “I fell in love with her that day." When ISIS raided their villages last August, Ali had to work on a building site. At night, he is called, someone told him that ISIS attacked Shingal. Viyan and her family were kidnapped. 
"I wanted to fight. From the moment when I realized that they’ve abducted Viyan. I went to Sherfedîn (Yezidi Pilgrimage) because I knew that Heydar Shesho had established a Yezidi unit which I wanted to join. I wanted to free Viyan, at any price.”
For months he is fighting in the mountains against ISIS, his thoughts always with Viyan, always in the hope to liberate her. After 116 days Viyan was freed by Ali and her brother.
Now they are finally united and in safety. The fact that they are getting married, was already clear, says Ali. They want as soon as possible to celebrate wedding. “We want to build a future here in Germany and stay here. For us, there is no turning back. A life of peace and safety isn’t possible in Iraq…The world should know that these liberated women and girls have gone through hell and are heroines. It’s an honor for me that I’ll marry Viyan. None of us doubts the abducted Yezidi women. And no one has to go through so much for his faith. The world should know that we don’t let down our women.”
They met each other 2 years ago in Sinjar (Iraq) at the most important Yezidi holiday “feast in honor of God”. On the pilgrimage, Ali (22) and Viyan (20) met for the first time. “I knew from the beginning that Viyan is the right one,” says Ali. “I fell in love with her that day." :-)

Islamic State: The Dutch Teen Who Maps the Jihadists

Thomas van Linge is a 19-year-old Dutch cartographer and activist.
Thomas van Linge is a 19-year-old Dutch cartographer and activist

One of the foremost cartographers of the Islamic State conflict is a 19-year-old from Amsterdam. Now that he's graduated from high school, he's preparing to take his activism to the next level.

Islamic State fighters have conquered Rahabi in Iraq. They control the Libyan coast near Sirt. In Syria, they just lost Tall Abyad to the Kurds, but are spreading out in the center of Palmyra. Thomas van Linge is keeping an eye on their movements. The 19-year-old wears a hoodie and, although he only just graduated from high school, he already knows better than most people where the Jihadists are heading, which areas they are occupying and where they've been beaten back. That's because van Linge makes some of the world's best maps of chaotic war zones from the desk of his childhood bedroom in Amsterdam. He has never been to Syria, Iraq or Libya, and he learned Arabic on YouTube.
