Evacuation of Syrian rebels from Homs under way

An evacuation has begun from the last opposition-held enclaves of the old city of Homs in Syria.

Rebel fighters and their families have started moving out of their besieged former stronghold, after three years resisting the Assad regime.

It marks the end of any rebel presence in the heart of the major city once dubbed the "capital of the revolution" against President Bashar al-Assad.

Lina Sinjab reports.
