Ruins and bodies on streets: Reuters shows footage from besieged Mariupol
Reuters journalists have visited the besieged city of Mariupol, namely the area of Illich Steel and Iron Works, one of two metals plants, where Ukrainian defenders were holding out in underground tunnels and bunkers. The relevant footage from that area was posted by Reuters.
“The factory was reduced to a ruin of twisted steel and blasted concrete, with no sign of defenders present. Several bodies of civilians lay scattered on nearby streets, including a woman in a pink parka and white shoes. Someone had spraypainted ‘mined’ on a fence by an obliterated filling station,” Reuters reports.
