Mideast mothers count days to Biden, visas to see children

Dahouk Idriss shows a page on her passport during an interview with AFP at her house in the Syrian capital Damascus on January 16, 2021. The Syrian mother says she cannot wait for US President-elect Biden to be inaugurated on January 20, so she can finally visit her son for the first time in four years. Biden has pledged that, on his first day of office, he would reverse a ban on travel to the United States from mostly-Muslim countries ordered by his predecessor Donald Trump. / AFP / LOUAI BESHA
