An international outcry has followed Russia's shelling of a nuclear power plant in Ukraine overnight. The IAEA says the reactor itself was not hit and no radiation was released.

The Ukrainian representative at the UN Sergiy Kyslytsya accused Russia of "an act of nuclear terrorism", dismissing his Russian counterparts' claims of domestic sabotage as "lies".

An international outcry followed after Russian forces launched an attack on Ukraine and Europe's largest nuclear power plant. The Zaporizhzhia site, now under Russian control, is said to be stable.

Earlier in the day, NATO's secretary-general has repeated that the military alliance will not get involved on the ground in Russia's war in Ukraine, or impose a no-fly zone.

Ukraine and Russia have agreed "in principle" to establish corridors for civilians to leave combat zones safely, and for ceasefires to operate while they make the journey.
