Six people have been killed by a Russian rocket attack on an apartment building in the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv, its mayor has said.

Rescuers were digging through the debris for survivors after the strike, Oleksandr Senkevych said in a Telegram post, which took place in the early hours of Friday morning.

There was no immediate comment on the reported attack from Moscow. Al Jazeera could not independently verify Senkevych’s claims.

Vitaliy Kim, the governor of the wider Mykolaiv region of the same name, also put the death toll from the alleged attack at six people. He had earlier said four people died in the reported strike.
