Russian missile attacks kill 19 in Odesa

At least 19 people, including one child, have died in overnight Russian missile strikes on Ukraine’s southern Odesa region, Ukrainian officials say, writes BBC.

The state emergency service, DSNS, says nearly all of the victims were in a nine-storey building hit by one missile in the village of Serhiyivka.

At least two people, including the child, were killed in a separate strike on a holiday resort in the village.

It released footage showing firefighters searching for survivors in the wreckage of the nine-storey building. They were also seen carrying what looked like the body of one of the victims in a bag. The DSNS says 38 people, including six children, were injured in the Russian strikes.
