The Associated Press reports today that over 39 were killed and dozens wounded when a car bomb exploded near buses carrying evacuees on the edge of Aleppo, Syria. The buses were part of a “demographic engineering” deal involving the transfer of nearly 5,000 pro-government people from villages in northern Syria that have been besieged by rebels. They were evacuated Friday, along with more than 2,000 pro-rebel people from a town outside of Damascus which was besieged by government forces.
The AP reports that the blast hit a bus depot in a rebel controlled area where residents of pro-government towns have arrived late Friday. The population transfer stalled as government representatives argued with rebels on the number of fighters to be evacuated.
