Hundreds of fighters and civilians in three besieged parts of Syria have been evacuated under a truce deal brokered by the United Nations.

Buses and ambulances ferried at least 120 Sunni rebels and civilians from Zabadani into nearby Lebanon.

At the same time, about 300 fighters and civilians were transported from two Shia villages in the north to Turkey.

Zabadani had been besieged by pro-regime forces, while Sunni rebels had encircled Kefraya and Fuaa for months.
