Malcom X's daughter Ilyasah Shabazz praises Turkey's role in refugee crisis

Afro-American civil rights leader Malcolm X's daughter has praised Turkey's "model" role as the host of more than 3 million Syrian refugees fleeing their war-torn country.

"It's so inspiring to know that this country [Turkey] is taking in refugees." Ilyasah Shabazz told Anadolu Agency in an interview on the sidelines of the TRT World Forum in Istanbul Wednesday.

"It is important to take care of our brothers and sisters, especially when they are troubled, when they have challenges. I think that it is such an inspiration to other countries and other people to know that you do that kind of humanitarian efforts," she said.
