Civilians affected by an attack on the city of Mariupol in Ukraine are receiving vital support from the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR.

The UN says a rocket, which appears to have been launched indiscriminately into civilian areas on Saturday, killed dozens of people and left over one hundred injured.

Fighting between Ukraine's government troops and pro-Russian rebels has continued despite a September ceasefire, forcing 650,000 people to flee their homes.

Stephanie Coutrix asked Spokesperson William Spindler about UNHCR's activities following the deadly attack.
