THESE three smiling Iraqi children didn't make it to Perth to join their dad.
They perished on a boat which sank off the coast of Indonesia, claiming 356 lives.
Last night Mohammad Alghazzi, 29, speaking through an interpreter, told The Sunday Times how he lost his wife of nine years, Rgad Alsadi, 27, and their children -- Ream, 10, Ali Almutth, 5, and Mohammed Almonther, 4.
A distraught Mr Alghazzi told how 15 members of his immediate family drowned, including his brother and sister-in-law and their young children.
