Ukraine Says Russia Bombed Children's Hospital in Mariupol

The hospital's been hit several times by an air strike

A Russian air strike badly damaged a children's hospital in the besieged Ukranian port city of Mariupol on Wednesday, burying patients under rubble and injuring women in labour, Ukraine said.

The bombing, which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy called an "atrocity," took place despite an agreed ceasefire to enable thousands of civilians trapped in the city to escape.

The city council said the hospital had been hit several times by an air strike, causing "colossal" destruction.
