At least 23 people have been killed and 28 injured in a Russian missile attack on a convoy of civilian vehicles on the outskirts of the southern Ukrainian city of Zaporizhia. The news agency Reuters reported the information with reference to the regional governor.

A Reuters witness confirmed seeing bodies lying on the ground in the city’s sprawling Orekhovo car market. He also said that the impact of the missile caused a hole in the ground next to the vehicle line.
