The Syrian government has agreed to allow women and children to leave the besieged city of Homs, according to the joint UN and Arab League Special Envoy Lakdhar Brahimi.
Speaking at the end of the second day of face to face meetings in Geneva, Mr Brahimi said the Syrian government has requested to vet all men wishing to leave the city of Homs.
"The government is saying that women and children can leave old city of Homs whenever they wish. They are asking for the list of civilians so that they see that they are civilians and not armed people."
