At least 1,842 civilians killed during war in Ukraine, UN says

Geneva, Apr 11 (EFE).- At least 1,842 civilians have been killed and 2,493 others wounded in Ukraine since the start of Russia’s invasion, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said on Monday.

Some 150 children were among the dead and 250 others were injured, according to UN estimates.

“Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, and missile and air strikes,” the OHCHR said in its daily update.

The OHCHR warned that actual figures could be significantly higher because data from areas where hostilities are registered usually arrive late, while several reports were still pending verification.

The body has been recording civilian casualties since Russia launched its full-scale attack on February 24.EFE
