Pressure mounts on Syria rebels to quit Ghouta holdout

A picture taken on March 28, 2018 shows a Syrian child playing on a damaged toy in the town of Hazzeh in Eastern Ghouta, on the outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus. Thousands of opposition fighters and civilians have agreed to quit the former rebel bastion of Ghouta, target of a five-week-long assault by the regime. Syrian troops have recaptured more than 90 percent of Ghouta, and are draining the last opposition pockets with negotiated pull-outs mediated by Russia. / AFP / STRINGER
