Syrian police units enter town of Douma

Syrian police units entered Saturday morning the town of Douma, site of a suspected chemical weapons attack and the last rebel town in the eastern Ghouta region, Syrian state-run TV said.


Syrian TV showed police waving Syrian flags apparently on the edge of the town just east of Damascus, and said the "terrorist presence" in Douma will end "in a few hours."


The entry of government forces to Douma follows a Russian-mediated deal that secured the surrender and evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians from the town.
