The Syrian government and rebels have reached a deal to allow the evacuation of four besieged areas.

According to UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, residents of government held villages of  Foah and Kefraya, will be evacuated in return for safe passage for people in two rebel-held areas of Madaya and Zabadani.

About 60,000 people live in the four besieged areas.
