The Aleppo evacuation ground to a halt on Friday after a disagreement between rebels and Syrian government forces, who were demanding that people also be allowed to leave two Shi'ite villages besieged by insurgents. Negotiations about how the evacuations would take place and how many people would leave were continuing on Sunday and there were no signs the evacuations had begun.
