4-year-old Syrian refugee found alone in desert

A 4-year-old Syrian refugee who was discovered alone in the middle of the desert was reunited with his family across the border in Jordan, a United Nations official said Sunday.

The boy, Marwan, had apparently become separated from his mother when he was spotted by humanitarian workers for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. According to the group, the boy was carrying a small plastic bag.

Andrew Harper, a UNHCR representative to Jordan, tweeted a photo of the unusual discovery.

“Marwan was safely reunited with his mother soon after being carried across the #Jordan border,” Harper later tweeted.
