A new life for Omar: Syrian torture victim thrives in Sweden - (euronews)

All the fun of the fair is a far cry for a young man who has seen hell on earth. Syrian torture survivor Omar Alshogre arrived in Sweden during the 2015 refugee crisis. Practicing his Swedish whenever he can, he works weekends in an ice cream parlour at a funfair. Omar was just 15 when the Arab Spring reached Syria. He took part in rallies calling for more freedom. The price he paid was harsh -three years behind bars.
