The Syrian government and rebel groups have reportedly agreed a truce in the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk.

A copy of the ceasefire deal, seen by the BBC, says the main entrances to the Syrian camp will be opened and basic services will be restored.

About 18,000 people have been besieged since last July. Rights groups say more than 100 people have starved to death.

Syria has been engulfed in a bloody conflict between government and rebel forces over the past three years.
