First grain exports could leave Ukraine within days

Ukraine says its first exports of grain could leave its Black Sea ports within days under a UN brokered deal with Russia.

Russia fired missiles on Ukraine's main port of Odesa over the weekend raising doubt around their commitment to the deal.

Twenty million tonnes of grain are trapped in the war torn country, which has lead to severe food shortages and price increases across main importer Africa.
