Six years on: Syrians who fled the war reflect on life in Sweden
Six years ago today, pro-democracy protests broke out in Syria. The events sparked a bloody war that caused millions to flee, among them Nour Rashdan and Ibrahim Muhanna.
Those first demonstrations in March 2011 grew into nation-wide unrest calling for the resignation for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The war that followed has led to the largest refugee crisis in the twenty-first century. Almost 5 million Syrians have fled and more than 100,000 of them have been granted asylum in Sweden, among them Nour Rashdan and Ibrahim Muhanna.
