Nearly 500 people were evacuated from eastern Aleppo late at night on Sunday (18 December), after three days of delays stopped the process. The evacuations grounded to a halt on Friday (16 December) after pro-government forces demanded that people also be moved out of two Shi’ite villages besieged by insurgents. Then on 18 December, armed men burned five buses that were supposed to be used for evacuation.
