|Egyptian boy travels alone to Italy to 'save' his sick young brother |
Ahmed Mahmoud, a thirteen-year-old boy, has travelled alone from his hometown in Egypt to seek medical treatment for his little brother who suffers from the blood disorder thrombocytopenia.
Ahmed's journey started on board the boat of a people smuggler in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria.
He eventually arrived in the Italian city of Florence carrying medical documents describing his brother's medical condition.
