Syria: After Aleppo, Homs rebels and families evacuated
BBC – Syrian rebels and their families are leaving their last remaining enclave in Homs, a city once dubbed “the capital of the revolution”.
Buses have begun transporting people out of al-Wair district, under a Russian-backed evacuation deal which was agreed in December 2015.
Al-Wair is home to an estimated 75,000 people and has been under siege by government forces since late 2013.
