ANKARA, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- The seven-year-old Syrian girl who has garnered worldwide attention tweeting about her life in Aleppo met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday, the second time after she evacuated to Turkey last December.
This time, her new friend U.S. actress Lindsay Lohan was with her.
Bana Alabed, who had used photos, videos or periscopes showing details of life in the war-torn Aleppo, tweeted on Friday a Periscope video with Lohan, writing "I have a new friend Lindsay Lohan."
"We want to send to all of the people in Syria and Aleppo suffering and to all the refugees we are here supporting you and you can hang on and be strong just like Bana has," Lohan, who became a Disney film star at aged 11, told the camera in the video.
Lohan and Alabed both posted the same photo of themselves with Erdogan and his wife online after the meeting.
The tweeting girl also wrote an open letter to Donald Trump after he took office as the U.S. president, asking him to "do something for the children of Syria."
Bana's mother created the twitter account for her daughter in late September in 2016 to share their life in Aleppo to the world. In early December last year, her tweet asking for pray immediately drew attention across the globe.
Syrian rebels captured eastern Aleppo in 2012. Syrian government troops and allied forces retook it recently in a massive offensive.
