Four other ships carrying 170,000 tons of corn and other foodstuffs have sailed from Ukrainian Black Sea ports under a deal unblocking Ukraine's exports.

The United Nations and Turkey brokered the agreement last month after warnings that the halt in grain shipments caused by the conflict could lead to severe food shortages and even outbreaks of famine in parts of the world.
