United Nations:The UN Security Council is expected to vote on a resolution aimed at immediately deploying UN monitors to eastern Aleppo, a move France says will be critical to prevent "mass atrocities" by Syrian forces, and especially militias, who captured the rebel stronghold.

The text calls for the United Nations and other institutions to monitor the evacuations and demands that UN chief Ban Ki-moon urgently consult all parties on the immediate deployment of the monitors.
