>> Twelve year old Yazidi boy Emad Mishko Tammo reunites with his mother Thursday morning at the Winnipeg airport, their first meeting after his capture by Islamic State three years ago.>>
> I'm very thankful for everyone that had any part to do with me reuniting with my mother.>> But it won't be an easy road for Emad.
His mother and her four younger children escaped, but Emad, his father and another brother did not. Part of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's plan to resettle 1,200 Yazidi refugees, Emad's mother and four siblings arrived in Winnipeg six months ago. And just a month ago, pictures taken by Iraqi forces were posted showing Emad had been rescued following a battle in Mosul.
Immigration officials acted quickly to bring Emad to Canada.>> How do you feel right now?>>
He is still recovering from bullet wounds and possibly psychological problems as well. But at least for now, he'll have his mother by his side to help him through as they await for news about the rest of their family.
