Living in an airport for 4 months [Article]

Ed Snowden’s spent four weeks in a Moscow airport, but Mohammed Al Bahish, a 26 year old Palestinian refugee has spent over 120 days in Kazakhstan’s Almaty International airport. He reckons he’s going slightly crazy.

He cannot enter Kazakhstan because he has no visa, but nor does he have a visa to enter any other country. Israel won’t allow him to travel to the Palestinian territories, and the UN accepts that with no living relatives in Iraq, it would be unsafe for him to return to the country of his birth.
