Aunt sobs as she describes drowned nephews

The aunt of Syrian boys Aylan and Galip Kurdi, who drowned in the Mediterranean, broke down in tears when she described her nephews.

"Those two kids, they didn't see a good life at all," Teema Kurdi, sister to the boys' father Abdullah, said.

Ms Kurdi, who lives in Vancouver, said that she had spoken to her sister-in-law Rehma, who also died, a week ago.

His wife called me a week ago, 'I'm so scared of the water, I don't know how to swim, if something happened, Abdullah will go, I don't want to go.'
