The death toll from the Russian missile strike on a five-story building in Zaporizhzhya during the night of March 1-2 has risen to five, acting mayor of the city, Anatoliy Kurtiev, reported on Telegram.
Rescuers said they managed to uncover four bodies, and found pieces of others that have yet to be identified.
Ten people remain missing. Eight residents were injured as a result of the attack.
Russian missiles launched from a S-300 air defense system struck a five-story residential building in Zaporizhzhya in the early hours of March 2, destroying more than 10 apartments.
Earlier, four people were reported dead.
Rescuers have been clearing the rubble of the building for more than a day.
Russian invasion forces regularly strike civilian targets in Ukraine. In one of the worst such atrocities, a Russian Kh-22 anti-ship missile, which carries a one-ton high-explosive warhead, hit a nine-story apartment block in Dnipro on Jan. 14, killing 46 civilians and injuring 80.
