BEIRUT - Syrian rebels on Wednesday delivered six UN ceasefire monitors who had been caught up in attack that killed at least 21 people over to their UN colleagues, a rebel source said.

He said the observers, who had been with rebels in the town since the previous day, departed Khan Sheikhoun in a UN vehicle that came from Damascus to retrieve them. They had stayed overnight with rebel forces who said it would be unsafe for them to leave alone.
