The UN Security Council has adopted a resolution calling for UN officials and others to monitor the mass evacuations from rebel-held east Aleppo and the safety of civilians still there.
Some 13,000 people have left the area since Thursday, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says.
The evacuation deal also includes government-held parts of Idlib province besieged by rebels.

Some 7,000 people are still trapped in Aleppo, according to the Syrian Observatory. Conditions there are grim, with no access to food and shelter and minimal medical facilities.
