UN: At least 136 dead in Ukraine, including 13 children

The United Nations says at least 136 civilians have been killed since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began last Thursday.

Thirteen children are believed to be among the dead.

But Liz Throssell, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said the real death toll is likely to be much higher.

Throssell said most of the casualties came as a result of heavy artillery shelling, airstrikes and other wide-impact explosives.

The UN also said that about 400 people have been injured in the fighting so far.

However, figures released by Ukraine’s government suggest as many as 352 civilians are dead and 1,684 injured.
