Syrian rebels began to leave the last opposition-held district of Homs city on Saturday under an evacuation deal that will see President Bashar al-Assad’s government take back the area, a Reuters witness, a monitor and state media said.

At least one bus carrying rebel fighters and their families left al-Waer district early in the day, and hundreds more people were expected to follow.
