Russia bombs theatre sheltering civilians

Russian forces dropped a bomb on a theatre where civilians were being sheltered in the besieged city of Mariupol, reported British Broadcasting Corporation, quoting local officials.

Deputy Mayor Sergei Orlov told the BBC between 1,000 and 1,200 people had sought refuge in the building. The number of casualties was still unknown.

The BBC could not independently verify the information.

Russia's airstrikes and shells have previously hit a maternity hospital, a church and apartment towers, said the report.

Local authorities say at least 2,400 people have been killed in Mariupol since the start of the war, although they acknowledge this is likely to be an underestimate, said the report, adding that many of the dead are being buried in mass graves.
