Some 500 people living in besieged areas in Syria are being evacuated by the United Nations, says Stephane Dujarric, a UN spokesman.
"Today plans are under way to evacuate some 500 people, including the sick, wounded and their family members, from the besieged four towns - which are Foua, Kefraya, Madaya and Zabadani - in urgent need of life-saving medical attention," Dujarric says.
Most evacuations are being done by road, he says, noting that there's no timeframe for when the operations will be finished.
