Evacuations From Eastern Aleppo Resume

Evacuations From Eastern Aleppo Resume

Evacuation efforts by aid agencies in Aleppo were suspended on Friday, just one day after buses began shuttling evacuees out of the rubble. This came amid accounts that pro-government militiamen had been executing evacuees. The Syrian government captured the rebel-held city after a ground-and-air siege by government and Russian forces, during which Aleppo residents posted "final goodbyes" on social media. The five-year civil war has killed more than 500,000 people, displacing half the country’s residents. We’ll talk with Bay Area Syrian-Americans about how the conflict has colored their lives and hear their fears and hopes for family and friends at home and abroad.
