Man Trapped in Airport for Over a Month

Newsweek reported,  that a trapped Syrian man — faced with ongoing civil war back home — has been stranded at a Malaysian airport for more than a month.

Hassan al-Kontar has been trapped and homeless at Kuala Lumpur International Airport since March 7, when he was sent back to Malaysia after trying to enter Cambodia and having his passport stripped away.

In one video he says, “I don’t know what to say or what to do. I need a solution, I need a safe place where I can be legally, with work,” he said. “Syria is out of the question, even if I am staying here forever. I don’t want to be part of the fight, I don’t want to kill anyone. I don’t want to be killed as well. It’s not my war.”
