Turkey says some 4,500 people have been evacuated from Aleppo since midnight
BEIRUT - Turkey's foreign minister says that a total of 12,000 people have so far been evacuated from the besieged city of Aleppo to an area under opposition control.
The evacuations were made possible through a cease-fire deal brokered by Russia and Turkey that paved way for rebels and civilians to leave the last opposition-held enclave in the city.
Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency says a total of 131 wounded people - including 46 children - have been brought to Turkey for treatment since the evacuations began last week. The agency says five of them have since died.
Russia is allied with Syrian President Bashar Assad, while Turkey is a leading sponsor of the opposition battling to topple him.
