Everyday life in the Syrian city of Deir el-Zour is slowly recovering after government forces broke a three-year siege by the Islamic State group earlier this month.
Dozens of people queued patiently in front of a newly-opened shop to get basic supplies. A market has sprung up in the centre of the eastern city, with locals selling second-hand goods or produce grown in back yards.
For the civilians, after three years relying on erratic air drops of supplies for survival during the siege, any semblance of normal life must come as a relief.
The scenes were filmed on Friday afternoon by the Associated Press on a facility with the Russian military, who were out on patrol. The crew were unable to work independently.
