A UN official says that evacuations have resumed from east Aleppo, with buses and ambulances leaving rebel areas of the Syrian city.

At least 350 people have reportedly left rebel enclaves in convoys, heading west towards government territory.

Earlier, buses sent to take people out of government-controlled areas, besieged by rebels, were set alight, halting the latest evacuation deal.

Thousands are waiting to leave east Aleppo in desperate conditions.
