The family of three-year-old Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi, whose photograph was taken at the Turkish beach where his body washed ashore, was seeking asylum in Canada but the family's application was initially refused by the country, reported media outlets.

Donnelly submitted the application on the family's behalf.
