I suppose if my country were erupting in violence and on the brink of authoritarianism I might be a bit distracted. That appears to have been the case for border guards when 9-year-old Emily Harris passed through Turkish customs with her family. Her mother inadvertently presented the pretend passport that came with a stuffed unicorn purchased on vacation, instead of the girl’s official passport from Wales.
The mistake was only discovered after the family had entered Turkey and were putting their passports away.
