    Mahmoud, Abdullah and Eesa are three young boys from Aleppo, Syria. The trio spend their days in Istanbul’s tourist areas looking for leftover food and money.

    When Al Jazeera’s Hassan Ghani found them, they were being kicked out of a Burger King.

    The Turkish government says there are now more than 1.6 million Syrian refugees in Turkey. Local charities put the number closer to three million.
