BEIRUT (Reuters) - The governor of Syria's Homs Province said agreement had been reached with rebels over the insurgent-held al-Waer district in the city of Homs that would involve rebel fighters leaving with their families in coming weeks, state media reported.

The opposition-affiliated Orient News reported that negotiators from al-Waer had signed an agreement for rebel factions and their families to depart for north Syria.
