The Wider Image: "A storm is coming": one migrant family's bid to reach Europe
Palestinian-Syrian refugee Ahmed, 27, walks into the water for his first swim in Aegean Sea, Izmir, Turkey, July 13, 2017. Ahmed's and Hanin's journey started amid Syria's conflict and brought the two Palestinians from their homes in Damascus' suburbs to Turkey. They were introduced in the winter of 2017 and married in the spring of 2018 in Izmir. Since, they'd been trying to reach Europe. The family once lost money they paid for a smuggler who never got in touch. They did get on a dinghy through another smuggler but were found by Turkish coast guard. "My dream nowadays is to travel legally to Europe because we are very tired here," Ahmed said. REUTERS/Ekaterina Anchevskaya SEARCH "SYRIA MIGRANTS" FOR THIS STORY.
