So were did all those Syrians in East Aleppo go?

Of 111,000 displaced fr east Aleppo, 74,951 or 2/3 went to Gov-controlled areas, & 36,086 to reb areas. v @aronlund

PS I have no doubt that Liz Sly of the Post and various other Western correspondents in Beirut would come up with some idiotic reasoning to explain this discrepancy: a vote with their feet (against the rebels).
