A group of Syrian Christian refugees has taken shelter in an Istanbul church, returning to Turkey almost 100 years after their ancestors were forced from Anatolia by the Ottoman Empire.

A Syrian Christian refugee said, “Wherever we go, we’re foreigners. But Syria is our home,” adding that his wife had already received a visa and had gone to Sweden.
