KUALA LUMPUR – Thirty-seven year-old Syrian asylum seeker Hassan Al Kontar uses social media to share his story of life at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Because of Hassan’s posts, volunteers from Malaysia to Canada have taken up his cause.
Adam Bemma met with Hassan at KLIA2. He’s been stuck in limbo hoping to be resettled to Canada with the help of family and friends there. They’ve started an online petition.
