BEIRUT - Private cars left Aleppo along with convoys of buses evacuating rebel fighters and civilians from the Syrian city on Friday, a rebel official and a monitoring group reported.

"People with their own cars were allowed to leave along with the buses today," said Zakaria Malahifji, a Turkey-based official in the Fastaqim rebel group.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said cars were leaving the city as efforts to complete the evacuation of thousands from the last rebel-held parts of Aleppo appeared to speed up.
