'Monstrous cloud' as missile hit Polish village

STORY: "I saw this monstrous black cloud and a streak of terrible smoke," local teacher Joanna Magus told media, "and, if I remember rightly, I saw fire, but it was something wrong with the power lines."

Magus, who teaches at the local school, also paid tribute to one of those she understood to have been killed in the blast, describing him as an "excellent person" who "was always helping others."

Two people were killed in the Tuesday (November 15) missile strike 3.5 miles from the border with Ukraine.
