BEIRUT - Syrian rebels shelled two Shi'ite villages in the northwest of the country on Tuesday, killing at least one person, residents said, a day after pro-government fighters and civilians left the area for Turkey under a local ceasefire agreement.

Under the UN-backed agreement, rebel fighters holed up in the town of Zabadani near the Lebanese border were simultaneously allowed safe passage to Beirut on Monday.

The ceasefire has been violated several times by both sides, but largely appears to be holding. Monday's evacuations took place even after previous violations.
