Aid workers hope that the dire situation in Eastern Ghouta is brightening with the evacuation of the first group of severely ill people from the besieged area.

Aid agencies have now evacuated 29 critically ill people from Eastern Ghouta.
They were allowed to leave as part of a deal with the Syrian government.
But many patients weren't as lucky.
Hundreds more are in urgent need of medical care that is simply not available in Eastern Ghouta.
