A 4-year-old Syrian refugee who was discovered alone in the middle of the desert was reunited with his family across the border in Jordan, a United Nations official said Sunday.
The boy, Marwan, had apparently become separated from his mother when he was spotted by humanitarian workers for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. According to the group, the boy was carrying a small plastic bag.
Andrew Harper, a UNHCR representative to Jordan, tweeted a photo of the unusual discovery.
"Marwan was safely reunited w his mother soon after being carried across the #Jordan border," Harper later tweeted.

Andrew Harper, head of the Jordan office of the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR, which runs the camp, said he has heard reports of rebel recruitment but has seen no evidence.
"If we see anything on the recruitment or the fighters coming into the camp, we will notify the Jordanian government," he told the Associated Press. "The camp is for the Syrian refugees, not the fighters, and we must ensure that its neutrality and impartiality is kept."
When an AP reporter told him of instances of overt recruitment witnessed by AP in the camp, Harper expressed surprise.
