Woman killed during shelling in Mariupol, east Ukraine
One woman died and three other people were injured during renewed shelling overnight in the port of Mariupol in eastern Ukraine, the local city administration said on Sunday, in a further blow to the region's fraying ceasefire.

 

Local media said the 33-year-old woman was the first civilian casualty since the ceasefire began on Friday evening.

 

Ukrainian government forces came under fire late on Saturday on the eastern outskirts of Mariupol, a strategic city on the Sea of Azov, in the first serious test of a ceasefire they had struck with pro-Russian separatists.
