Russia says nearly seven hundred more Ukrainian fighters have surrendered at the Mariupol steelworks.

In a statement, Russia's ministry of defence said surrender of more fighters meant nearly thousand people had now lain down their arms at the vast Azovstal steelworks, last bastion of Ukrainian defenders in the city.

Meanwhile, Ukraine said it would not reveal how many were there until the operation to rescue all of them is complete.
