We told you the story was full of holes. Well this just drove a tank through it. Even the above picture that Abdullah was pitching about his son’s room and toys is a lie, as Alan was only 3 when he died and they left Syria for Turkey three years before.
Via National Post:
An Iraqi woman who was on the same boat as Alan Kurdi, the boy whose body washed up on a Turkish beach last week, says his father was in charge of the boat that capsized, drowning many of the migrants on board.
The woman, Zainab Abbas, lost two of her own children on the fateful crossing, and is now back in Iraq. She told Channel Ten news in Australia in an interview that Abdullah Kurdi was driving the boat. She also accused him of being part of a ring of smugglers who help refugees make their way to Europe.
