        Women and Children Evacuated from War-torn Syrian City

        Hundreds of civilians seeking to flee the besieged Syrian city of Homs were evacuated on Sunday. In total, more than 600 were evacuated from Homs, but Al-Jazeera, citing the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said five were killed by mortar shells and two from gunfire. The evacuation was part of a three-day ceasefire that began Friday between the government of President Bashar al-Assad and armed rebels.
