In Syria, evacuation of people from the last opposition-held areas of Aleppo was suspended after accusations from both sides.

The United Nations says 50,000 people remain in rebel-held Aleppo.

Aleppo had been divided between government and rebel areas during the conflict, but a swift advance by the Syrian army and its allies that began in mid-November deprived the insurgents of most of their territory in a matter of weeks.

The conflict has killed more than 300,000 people.
