COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The body of a toddler who washed ashore on Norway’s southwest coast on Jan.1 has been identified. It’s a missing 15-month-old Iranian boy who died months earlier in the English Channel hundreds of miles away after the smuggling boat carrying him, his parents and his siblings capsized. After finding the body, police in Norway carried out DNA tests to establish the identity of the child who disappeared on Oct. 27, some 300 miles south of the Norwegian island where he was found. Police in Norway say the toddler and his family drowned when a group of migrants tried to cross the waterway from France to England.
