A Syrian boy, who was evacuated from the last rebel-held pockets of Syria's northen city of Aleppo, sits next to bird cages upon arriving on December 20, 2016 in the opposition-controlled Khan al-Assal region, west of the embattled city. At least 25,000 people have left the bombed-out eastern districts of Syria's Aleppo since evacuations began last week, the International Committee of the Red Cross said. ***** The caged bird sings with A fearful trill of things unknown But longed for still and his Tune is heard on the distant hill For the caged bird sings of freedom. - Maya Angelou *****
