Four Year-Old Syrian Child “Found Alone in the Desert” Was a Hoax (Updated)

Yesterday, the mainstream media reported…
A four year-old Syrian child was found wandering the desert near Jordan on Sunday.
The boy was reunited with his mother after being carried across the Jordan border.

Yahoo reported:

A 4-year-old Syrian refugee who was discovered alone in the middle of the desert was reunited with his family across the border in Jordan, a United Nations official said Sunday. The boy, Marwan, had apparently become separated from his mother when he was spotted by humanitarian workers for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. According to the group, the boy was carrying a small plastic bag. Andrew Harper, a UNHCR representative to Jordan, tweeted a photo of the unusual discovery. “Marwan was safely reunited w his mother soon after being carried across the #Jordan border,” Harper later tweeted.

But it was a hoax. The four year-old was with a group of refugees. He was not traveling alone. Here he is pictured with the group of refugees:
