His legs and arms heavily bandaged, shocked Birmingham youngster Louis Beckford was among ten Britons injured when bombs ripped through two of Turkey's most popular tourist resorts this weekend.
The ten-year-old was on holiday with his family when three explosions rocked the south-coast port of Marmaris on Sunday night. His elder cousin Alex Beckford and his grandmother, Suzanna, were also injured.
Clearly traumatised by the violence, Mrs Beckford could only ask: "Why have they done this to us? We have done nothing."
Three bombs exploded simultaneously in Marmaris on Sunday night, only hours after a blast in the capital, Istanbul. Dozens of holidaymakers and locals were injured when one device went off on a shuttle bus used for ferrying people around the holiday destination.
Yesterday, a fifth device killed two people and injured a further 20 when it was detonated in front of a cafe in the resort of Antalya.
Briton Rob Laughton, 41, was having dinner at a restaurant in the middle of Marmaris with his wife when he heard the explosions on Sunday. "We just saw the bus and bodies lying on the ground," he said. "We thought 'we don't want to be here'. We just ran away."
Turkey is a popular destination for Midland families, with Birmingham International offering three flights a day to nearby Dalaman airport.
Last night the Foreign Office, which warns of "a high threat from terrorism in Turkey", said a rapid deployment team was en route to Marmaris to join consular staff working with the British holiday-makers affected.
The injured Britons included a 73-year-old woman and a seven-year-old boy. None are believed to have suffered life-threatening injuries.
A militant Kurdish group that has threatened to target Turkey's vital tourism industry claimed responsibility for the bomb attacks last night.
