Buildings at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station in Ukraine – the largest in Europe – have been damaged and Ukraine says there were deaths and injuries.

The US representative, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, has been telling the meeting that Russia’s actions were “reckless” and “dangerous”.

“By the grace of God, the world narrowly averted a nuclear catastrophe last night. We all waited to exhale as we watched the horrific situation unfold in real time,” she says.
