A six-year-old American boy who wrote to Barack Obama, offering a Syrian refugee a place in his family, has met the US president at the White House.

Alex, from New York, wrote to offer a home to five-year-old Omran Daqneesh, a bloodied and dazed Syrian boy, whose picture went viral after he was rescued from a destroyed building.
