A life lost at sea, but this baby survived

At the start of 2016, a rescue boat off the coast of the Greek island of Agathonisi recovered the body of a two-year-old boy from Syria called Khalid. Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) director Martin Xuereb talks to us about the rescue operation that saved a group of refugees, including Khalid's mother and a small baby (pictured above.)
