    BEIRUT - In the end he also fled Yarmuk: Ayham Ahmad, the Palestinian pianist who remained in the besieged refugee camp of Damascus to comfort those who were trapped with him through his music is travelling to Europe through Turkey and Greece, according to his Facebook profile.

    The young activist, who is married and has two children, wrote about it in his ''Diary of a sea traveler'', updating his friends about his own difficulties and those of many other migrants.

    Over the past few months, his story had been reported when Islamic State jihadists, in part present in Yarmuk, had set his piano on fire. He had fled with his family to a nearby district of the capital. He subsequently decided to leave Syria through migrant smugglers.
