HEARTBREAKING! GRIEF AS FATHER BURIES HIS TWO SONS AND HIS WIFE WHO DROWNED IN THE GREEK ISLAND


                               Heart-breaking: Abdullah Kurdi says his final goodbyes to his two sons and his wife before they are buried


The grief-stricken father of two refugee boys who drowned alongside their mother has  been buried  in
Kobane, as it's revealed 11 relatives were slaughtered by Islamic State militants in the war-torn city.

Aylan, three, his brother Galip, five, and mother Rehan died when their dinghy capsized as they tried to reach the Greek island of Kos in the dead of night.

Today, as their father Abdullah Kurdi accompanied their coffins to Syria, it emerged that 11 members of their family were murdered by terrorists in June. As a father who lost his children, I want nothing for myself from this world,' he said. 'All I want is that this tragedy in Syria immediately ends and peace again reigns.'

The family is being buried at a place known as Martyrs' Ceremony in the city.
