A man from Syria said he has been stranded at the Malaysian airport for over a month after being denied entry to several countries.

Hassan al-Kontar has posted videos on Twitter describing his situation, which began when he arrived at the budget terminal of Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Hassan, as per reports, has been sleeping under stairwells and showering in toilets in the transit section at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 since March 7 after being sent back to the country during a failed attempt to enter Cambodia.

“I don’t know what to say or what to do. I need a solution, I need a safe place where I can be legally with work,” he told BBC News via Whatsapp messengering service. “Syria is out of the question, even if I am staying here forever. I don’t want to be part of the fight, I don’t want to kill anyone. I don’t want to be killed as well. It’s not my war.”

“I’m not a killing machine and I don’t want any part in destroying Syria,” he said.

“I don’t want blood on my hands. War is never the solution but unfortunately, even from where I am now, I am paying the price of its actions.”
