>> Buses ready and waiting, but not yet moving into Aleppo's eastern districts where Syrian rebels and their families await evacuation. Instead, there's delays. A war monitor says the reason is unclear, but an opposition official blames Shia militias allied to president Bashar Al-Assad for the holdup. An agreement struck on Tuesday ending the bloody battle, handing Assad his biggest victory yet after more than five years of war.
It follows a rapid advance by the Syrian army in the last couple of weeks that drove opposition fighters into a pocket of the city once divided between the two sides. Under the truce, insurgents and civilians promised safe passage. Sources on Tuesday stating different start times for the evacuation.
Regardless, nobody had left by dawn. Pro-Syrian opposition orient TV reporting the evacuation may now not be until Thursday. The ceasefire still in place despite the delays.
