The Telegraph today features an interview with Khattab Al Mohammad, one of the Syrian refugees who moved to Iceland with their families in January. 

The article focuses on how the family are adjusting to life in Akureyri, North Iceland, and to the cold, snow and darkness of an Icelandic winter. 

Mr Al Mohammad agreed that the weather has proved the biggest surprise. “In Syria, we have snow for maybe one or two days,” he said. “Here, we have had it for a month now. For us, it’s the freezer.”
