Russians leaving Syria cross into Lebanon

Four buses carrying Russian citizens escaping the Syrian civil war have crossed into Lebanon.
A Russian embassy official traveling with the group on Tuesday says about 80 people, mostly women and children, are on the buses.
Several men also have been seen in the first group of Russian citizens being evacuated from Syria.
Russia sent two planes to Beirut that will take the group home later.
