Evacuation buses of fighters and families start to leave Aleppo - state media

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A number of buses containing fighters from east Aleppo and their families have started to leave the last rebel-held sector of the Syrian city, Syrian state television, citing its correspondent in the city, said on Sunday.

Syrian state television reported on Sunday that a deal between the government and rebels to evacuate people from east Aleppo in return for the evacuation of people from al-Foua and Kefraya, two villages besieged by insurgents, had started to be implemented.
