Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi graffiti in Brazil

A person walks past a graffiti depicting the drowned Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi in Sorocaba, Brazil, September 5, 2015. Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff criticized European nations on Friday for creating "barriers" to the entry of migrants, saying the Syrian child found on a beach in Turkey had died because he was "not welcome." Three-year-old Aylan Kurdi died along with his mother and 5-year-old brother as they attempted to cross the Mediterranean to Greece. Photographs of Kurdi, washed up dead on the shores of Turkey, shocked the world and led to a wave of criticism against the way Europe is dealing with the thousands of refugees fleeing conflict in the Middle East. The graffiti reads: "Peace, peace, peace, abandoned". Picture: REUTERS/Paulo Whitaker.
