16 killed, 59 wounded in missile strike on Ukraine mall


Ukraine: The toll from a Russian missile strike on a shopping mall in the central city of Kremenchuk has risen to 16 dead and 59 wounded, the head of Ukraine’s emergency services said early Tuesday.

“As of now, we know of 16 dead and 59 wounded, 25 of them hospitalised. The information is being updated,” Sergiy Kruk said on Telegram.

He said the main tasks were “rescue works, debris removal, and elimination of fires” following Monday’s strike on the shopping centre.

Earlier, Zelensky had said “over a thousand civilians” were in the mall when the missiles struck the city, which had a pre-war population of 220,000 people.
