Three Turkish men have been sentenced for the killing of Aylan Kurdi, the Syrian toddler whose drowning was the catalyst for the 2015-16 migrant crisis.
Bodrum High Criminal Court, Mugla, sentenced Cebrail E., Ecevit Bulent G, and Ali Can S. to 125 years each for the crime of "killing with eventual intent", according to a CNN, citing local state-run media.
They are said to have been part a human trafficking ring, and to have been sentenced only after the security forces hunted them down to Turkey's southern province of Adana after an attempt to flee from their trial.
[...] While traffickers have now been convicted of Aylan's killing, his father, Abdullah Kurdi — who had been living in Turkey in safety and receiving financial assistance from Canada-based relations for three years before he made the fateful decision to attempt a sea crossing to Europe — initially said Western governments were responsible, having refused to accept them as asylum seekers.
