Turkey brokers deal for wheat transit

Turkey has brokered a deal with Russia to enable the Ukraine to export about 20 million tonnes of wheat held in storage.

It should relieve some of the concern that tens of thousands of people would be left with little or no food, particularly in Africa.

Ukrainian ships would be inspected and escorted in and out of ports, Turkey said.

The deal has yet to be signed.
