UN Security Council condemns Ukraine bus attack14 january 2015, 14:41
The UN Security Council strongly condemned on Tuesday a rocket attack on a bus in east Ukraine that left 11 civilians dead, AFP reports.
In a unanimous statement of the 15 members including Russia, the council called for an investigation to bring those responsible for the attack to justice.
The council "condemned in the strongest terms the killing of eleven and injuring of seventeen civilians as a result of the shelling of a passenger bus in Volnovakha, Donetsk region," said the statement
The long-range Grad rocket was apparently fired by pro-Russian separatists on the intercity bus.
Local police said the rocket was aimed at a checkpoint set up by Ukrainian government soldiers but went astray.
