At least seven people were killed and 67 injured in a Russian nighttime missile strike on a city in Ukraine’s eastern region of Donetsk, local authorities said early on Tuesday.

“The tragedy in Pokrovsk: information about the victims as of 7:00 a.m (0400GMT). Seven people died. 67 were injured, including 29 police officers, seven rescuers and two children,” Ukrainian Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko said in a statement on Telegram.

Authorities had to halt demolition work in the area due to the high threat of repeated shelling, but were later able to continue, Klymenko added.
