Aylan, whose body washed up on a beach in southwest Turkey,
drowned along with his mother and brother among a group of
migrants trying to reach Greece by boat.
The two Syrians were each sentenced to four years and two months
in jail for smuggling, Dogan reported. They were acquitted of a
charge of causing death through conscious neglect.
Since Aylan's death, the European Union has faced a growing
crisis over how to deal with hundreds of thousands of migrants
from Syria and elsewhere, a crisis that threatens to tear the
28-nation bloc apart.
EU Council President Donald Tusk was visiting Turkey on Friday
to press for closer cooperation in dealing with the migrants
ahead of an EU summit on Monday.
Praised for taking in some 2.5 million refugees from Syria's
five-year civil war, Turkey - a candidate for EU membership - is
under pressure to stop migrants making perilous onward journeys
