Dozens of Beach Goers in Touching Tribute to Tragic Aylan

THIS is the touching moment dozens of people paid tribute to Aylan Kurdi just days after his shocking death.

They re-enacted the horrific photo of the three-year-old Syrian lad who was found dead on a Turkish beach last week.
He drowned with his mum Rehan and brother Galip, five, after paying cruel people traffickers thousands to cross from Turkey to Greece by boat.
The young family had fled their home town of Kobane after twisted Islamic State fighters besieged the city.
Around 30 people lay face-down on a beach in Rabat, Morocco yesterday to recreate the harrowing scene.

Moroccan actress Latifa Ahrar, who helped organise the event, said: "As an artist, my duty is to react and to come here with my colleagues to say that a small gesture can be worth a lot."

Journalist Rachid el-Belghiti said: "We are here to say that the Mediterranean should remain a space for sharing and exchanges, not a barrier for those who are victims of dictatorships, civil wars and terrorism."

The tribute came after David Cameron announced plans to let 20,000 Syrian refugees into Britain over the next five years.
Yesterday the Prime Minister hailed Britain as "a country of extraordinary compassion" during a speech in the House of Commons.
