Rights group Amnesty International says a Russian airstrike on a Ukrainian theater is a war crime.

A report released today, says there is evidence to suggest that the strikes deliberately targeted the theater being used as a shelter in the beseiged city of Mariupol.

Amnesty says there is no evidence the Donetsk Academic Regional Drama Theater was a base of operations for Ukrainian soldiers as Russia has claimed.

The March 16-th airstrike devastated (毀壞) the building, with estimates from 300 to 600 dead, with the theater mostly sheltering women, the elderly, and children.
