BEIRUT (AP) — The last Syrian rebels and civilians are awaiting evacuation from the remainder of what was once a rebel enclave in eastern Aleppo. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says that more than 15,000 people, among them 5,000 opposition fighters, have left the enclave since the rebels effectively surrendered the area under an Ankara- and Moscow-brokered deal. It's unclear how many remain.

SYDNEY (AP) — Investigators searching for nearly two years for a missing Malaysia Airlines plane are making a painful admission: They've probably been looking in the wrong place. The latest analysis by a team of international investigators says the Boeing 777 is likely farther north of the current search zone, a remote patch of the Indian Ocean west of Australia. The plane, with 239 people on board, disappeared while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
