Palestinians have started to return to their homes in the Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria after clashes between the army and the rebels in the area subsided.

According to the UN Relief and Works Agency, many of the roughly 150,000 Palestinian refugees fled Yarmouk in the last week.

Some of them found refuge in the Shatila refugee camp, across the border in the Lebanese capital.
