AMMAN - Syrian forces have begun pulling out of the eastern city of Deir al-Zor after "ridding the city of armed groups", the official Syrian state news agency said on Tuesday.

President Bashar Assad's forces, backed by tanks, stormed Deir al-Zor, capital of an oil-producing province near the border with Iraq on Aug. 7, following large protests demanding political freedoms and his removal, part of a wider five-month uprising against 41 years of Assad family rule.
