AFP, Saturday 14 Oct 2017

A convoy will leave Syria's Raqa on Saturday under an evacuation deal, the US-led coalition said, as a US-backed force battles to seize the Islamic State group's last positions there.

The coalition said the deal reached by local officials aimed to "minimise civilian casualties" and would exclude foreign IS fighters, but made no mention of whether Syrian jihadists would be able to leave.
