Syria: Rebels await evacuation, as fighting ends in Aleppo
Dec.14, Aleppo: Rebel fighters are preparing to leave eastern Aleppo under a deal that could end more than four years of fierce fighting in the Syrian city.
Government buses have been brought in, but the evacuation is being delayed.
Russia, a key ally of President Bashar al-Assad, said on Tuesday military action had ended. City residents say there has been no fighting since then.
Russia also said that government troops had re-established control over the last areas held by the rebels.
The rebels had been squeezed into ever smaller areas of the city in recent months in a major government offensive backed by Russian air power.
