STORY: Rescue workers recovered the body of an elderly woman from the rubble of the apartment block early on Tuesday.

Liubov Fanta, a 69-year-old survivor of the attack, was rescued from underneath the rubble and was suffering from concussion.

A nearby two storey school was severely damaged, the facade was torn off by the force of the blast that left a massive crater. "They want to destroy all of us," said Iryna Siden, 48, the school’s deputy director, standing in front of the gutted building as workers began sweeping up the rubble.
