Russia claims Aleppo evacuations are "completed"
Russia says that all women and children have been taken out of eastern Aleppo and that a final sweep by the Syrian military is under way to clear out the last remaining rebels in the city
A statement on Friday from the Russian military's Centre for Reconciliation in Syria said the evacuations have been "completed".
It came shortly after the Syrian government said it was suspending the evacuations because a convoy leaving Aleppo was fired on by the rebels.
The UN and international aid agencies insist there are still people in eastern Aleppo waiting to be evacuated.
Russia said that more than 9,500 people, including more than 4,500 rebels and 337 wounded, have been taken out of the rebel-held districts in eastern Aleppo.
The Russian military also says some die-hard militants have stayed behind and are firing on the Syrian government troops.
