800 Syrians Start Leaving Crowded Al-Hol Camp

Some 800 Syrian women and children started leaving the Kurdish-run Al-Hol camp in northeast Syria on Monday, en route to their hometowns in the nearby province of Raqa, an AFP correspondent said.

At least 17 buses were seen leaving the area in the first such transfer from the crowded camp which is home to nearly 74,000 people, including relatives of Islamic State group jihadists, he added.
