Aid agencies are hoping to resume the evacuation of civilians from Syria's besieged city of Homs, a day after the operation was suspended.

Hundreds of civilians remain trapped in the Old City - a hub of the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

There are also concerns about the safety of scores of men and boys held by the authorities for screening after leaving Homs earlier.

More than 1,100 people have fled the city since Friday under a truce.
