Emergency workers clear rubble after Odesa strike

STORY: Seven missiles were launched in the direction of a shopping center and a depot, spokeswoman of Ukraine’s Operational Command "South" Nataliia Humeniuk told Reuters.

She added that it appeared the rockets used were old, adding that they could have been manufactured in the Soviet era.

Video footage from the scene showed smoke billowing and rescue workers combing through piles of rubble.

Ukrainian emergency services said all the fires set off by the strikes were extinguished early on Tuesday.
