Violence has been raging in different areas of Ukraine as artillery shelling has become a common activity for the people living in rebel held regions. However, three mortar shells that had hit a school playground on Thursday had left many shattered. A couple of teenage students were playing in the playground at the same time when they were being hit by the shells. Two teenagers of age 14 and 18 yrs died on the spot. The officials retrieved the body from under tarpaulin on the school sports playground, while four other teenagers were badly wounded and were rushed to the hospital immediately.
Despite a nominal ceasefire agreement between government forces and pro-Russian rebels violence has been increasing in the country with casualties reaching higher levels with every passing day. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
