Refugee crisis : Lost children being split from parents

As thousands of refugees and migrants continue to enter Europe, children are being split from their parents in the chaos and being forced to continue their journey vulnerable and alone. In Hungary, seven Syrian teenagers told how police forced their parents and younger siblings on to tour buses to processing camps as they were left to fend for themselves on a motorway. Marah Babili, 19, told The Times she and six younger cousins had crossed the Aegean Sea from Turkey to reach Greece with a larger family group and journeyed north through Europe, aiming to reach Germany. “I don’t know what to do,” she said. “Suddenly I am the parent. It’s scary.”
