Syrian dad appeals to British Foreign Office to reunite him with his son


'Wael Zain, a Syrian living and working in London, has turned to Twitter to draw attention to the plight of his five-year-old son, Maudh, who holds a British nationality, and who has been stranded in Syria for three years.

Wael has not seen his son in three years :

'In a series of tweets, Zain explains that his son, whom he claims was recently shot at, is with his mother in a village in Deraa, and needs medical attention. He also claims that the British Foreign Office has turned a deaf ear to his ordeal. '

Follow Wael :

This situation is very similar to Christine's and Ziad's (now happily reunited) :

... and Shafik's and Nusrin's :

... this is a disturbing trend and questions must be asked here - the embassy must act in the interests of the British citizen.
