Paramedics in a Syrian refugee camp say children are dying because of a lack of medical care. Tens of thousands of refugees have arrived in recent weeks after fleeing the fighting in Baghouz, the last stronghold of so-called Islamic State.
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have said 32 jihadis were killed in the latest clashes in eastern Syria. Die-hard IS fighters have resorted to suicide bombings in a last-ditch attempt to avoid total defeat.
Thousands of evacuees have been pouring out of the small village of Baghouz in Syria, the last remnant of the "Islamic State" (IS) caliphate. Many of the evacuated IS women remained defiant, praising the extremist group.
The convoy is the first to arrive since January. Some 50,000 people are stranded under desperate conditions at the Rukban camp, 18,000 of them children.
Globally, the Red Cross remains an essential network for people whose relatives have gone missing and cannot be located through other means. The ICRC is searching for more than 100,000 people currently missing worldwide.
