    Meetings are taking place to decide the fate of 40,000 Syrians trapped in a remote camp.

    The United Nations is taking part in discussions with the Russian military, the Syrian government and representatives of those at the Rukban camp - near the borders with Jordan and Iraq.

    The UN told Al Jazeera that the majority want to leave but they have not been given any security guarantees.
