ANKARA - She was only seven years old, but became known worldwide by its twitter reports from eastern Aleppo. Now the Syrian Bana Alabed finally together with her parents and brothers escaped the misery in the wrecked city and arrived in Turkey. Turkish President Erdogan managed to pick up the family by helicopter.
Bana and her mother Fatemah had two days earlier asked for his help via Twitter. Tuesday showed Bana know she was eastern Aleppo fled. 'But we can not be happy until all the remaining people who want to be evacuated away,' added her mother about it.
Wednesday sent the girl photographs in which she and her brother hugged by Erdogan. 'Very glad to meet Mr. Erdogan,' she wrote. Or the family in Turkey remains is still unknown.
More than 325 000 people followed Bana's updates in recent weeks on Twitter. Which first went above the attempts of the family to lead a somewhat normal life. As the siege of eastern Aleppo became more violent, called the Syrian girl and her mother increasingly desperate for help.
