Syrian TV says dozens killed in blast near evacuation buses

They are also causing demographic changes because those who are displaced are usually Sunni Muslims, like most of the opposition.

Rescuers say at least 100 people were killed from opposition and government supporters.

The group says it is starting a probe into the cause of the attack, and said it is ready to cooperate with an global investigation to determine who carried it out.

Pictures showed blackened buses with windows blown out, Reuters reported.

Mohammad Darwish, a doctor who has been evacuated from Madaya, witnessed the explosion. The state TV channel said the vehicle was carrying food aid but a rebel spokesman said the auto had been parked in the area and abandoned. Food was distributed after several hours and by early afternoon the evacuees from rebel-held areas were "pressured" to sit back on their buses, Afandar said.

The British Foreign Office in London said in a statement: "We can confirm the tragic death of a British national in Jerusalem ". A pregnant women and 50-year-old man were also injured when the tram came to a sudden stop and in the aftermath of the attack.

"When I first went onto the bus, I broke down from sadness, I fell on the ground and they had to help me", said Fuaa resident Abu Hussein.

The blast earlier Saturday killed at least 39 people and wounded dozens.

They had been waiting since late Friday for the buses to start moving, when the "Four Towns" deal stalled. The two sides disagreed on the number of fighters to be evacuated from four areas. The government blamed the rebels for the attack.

The deal to evacuate the towns is the latest in a string of such agreements through Syria's six-year civil war.

No one claimed responsibility for the attack but pro-government media and the opposition exchanged accusations, each pointing to foreign interference or conspiracies undermining the deal.

At least 39 people are dead after a auto bomb exploded near a convoy carrying evacuees from besieged areas of Syria, human rights groups and Syrian media report. In footage aired on Syrian TV, bodies were strewn outside buses, including fighters.

The blast hit buses in the Rashidin area on Aleppo's outskirts, which had been waiting to cross from rebel-held territory into the government-controlled city itself, carrying people evacuated from two Shiite villages on Friday.

Some 30,000 besieged people would be taken out but, according to AFP news agency, up to 5,000 government evacuees and 2,200 from rebel towns are now stranded.

The state TV channel said the explosion was caused by a auto bomb. According to the New York Times, the evacuations were the result of a deal brokered by the Syrian government.

Ahmed Afandar, a resident evacuated from his home near Madaya, said: "The people are restless and the situation is disastrous". He said it is not clear what hinders the completion of the evacuation.
