Bus with 12 civilians leaves besieged Azovstal plant in Mariupol

Twelve civilians, including children, have been evacuated by bus from the Azovstal compound in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, which is besieged by Russian forces, Russia’s state news agency RIA reported on Friday, citing its correspondent on the spot.

Ukrainian officials had accused Russia of violating a ceasefire on Friday aimed at evacuating dozens of civilians trapped underground at the bombed-out steel mill after fighting thwarted efforts to rescue them the day before.
