Hundreds of civilians seeking to flee the besieged Syrian city of Homs were evacuated on Sunday.
Aid groups were also able to deliver much-needed food and medical supplies to the residents left behind in the stricken city.
In total, more than 600 were evacuated from Homs, but Al-Jazeera, citing the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said five were killed by mortar shells and two from gunfire.
The evacuation was part of a three-day ceasefire that began Friday between the government of President Bashar al-Assad and armed rebels.
Forces loyal to Assad have blockaded rebel-held parts of the city for over a year.
