Hundreds of Syrians returned to Aleppo on Friday to check on their homes after the last rebels left the city Thursday.
Residents wrapped in heavy coats crossed into neighborhoods that had recently been dangerous front lines during the battle for Aleppo, sorting through the wreckage for personal belongings. Some of them had not been able to reach their homes for five years.
While much of the city was free from fighting, sporadic violence continued in some parts. State television reported that rebels outside Aleppo shelled a neighborhood inside the city Friday, killing three people.
