Ukraine and separatist rebels in the east of the country exchange prisoners

BBC OS gives a vibrant account of the day\u2019s events with explanation and reaction from those involved.

Ukraine has handed over more than 260 people to the pro-Russian militants in exchange for 74 held captive in the self-proclaimed "people's republics" in Donetsk and Luhansk. We have the latest from Kiev.

And we have the latest on medical evacuations which have been taking place from a rebel-held area on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, Damascus.

We also take a look back at some of the best coverage of 2017.
