Rockets Target Mariupol

Ukraine’s Interior Ministry says 15 civilians were killed and 46 injured on January 24 when the government-held port city of Mariupol was targeted by heavy barrages of Grad rockets as part of a Russian-backed separatist offensive. The local mayor’s office said a crowded market was hit and other buildings were in flames in a southeastern residential district of Mariupol near roads that have come under attack from Russian-backed separatists in recent days.
