Friday saw a further 50 civilians, including 11 children, evacuated from the beseiged Azovstal steelworks in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, in an operation co-ordinated by the UN and the Red Cross, APA reports citing BBC.

"We hope that soon they will be able to arrive in a safe area after two months of shelling, just underground," said Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Earlier this week it was estimated that 200 civilians were still trapped inside the steel plant - the last remaining Ukrainian stronghold in the port city.

Zelensky said diplomatic efforts were afoot to get both the civilians and the remaining military personnel to safety - with evacuations expected to resume today.

He said his government was "working on diplomatic options to save our military who still remain at Azovstal".

"Influential mediators are involved," he added.
