Lviv, Ukraine, Oct 6 (EFE).- At least two people were killed and several were still trapped under rubble following a Russian attack on the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia, reported regional governor Oleksandr Starukh on Telegram.

The Russian army fired seven rockets at residential buildings in Zaporizhzhia and, as a result of the attack, two high-rise apartment blocks were destroyed, he said.

“Preliminary data regarding on victims of the enemy attack! One woman was died. Another died in an ambulance. At least five people are under the rubble of the buildings,” Starukh said.

Many people were saved, among them a three-year-old girl.
