His name is Hassan al-Kontar and he has been stuck in a Malaysian airport since March. He was not allowed to enter Malaysia because of visa issues and was also not allowed to travel to other countries as well. He shared a short version of his heart-wrenching story on Twitter earlier this year:

 

 

As it can be seen, he submitted an application to get rehabilitated at Canada in April. Hassan al-Kontar has been posting various photos and videos since he got stuck at the airport. The posts show him surviving on donated food, bathing at public toilets at Kuala Lumpur International Airport and even giving himself a haircut.
