Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Saturday said more than 300 civilians had been rescued from the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, which has been pounded by Russian forces for several weeks.

Zelenskiy said in a late night address that authorities would now focus on evacuating the wounded and medics as well as working on humanitarian corridors for all residents of Mariupol and surrounding settlements. (Reporting by David Ljunggren Editing by Matthew Lewis)
