BEIRUT (Reuters) - The evacuation of all civilians from two loyalist Syrian villages that were besieged by rebels in the northwest is complete, Syria's Ikhbariya television said on Thursday.

Ikhbariya said all buses had left al-Foua and Kefraya by Thursday morning, making the two Shi'ite villages "empty of civilians". More than 100 buses arrived on Wednesday to transport residents and fighters from the villages to nearby government-held territory in Aleppo province.
