Crimea attack: College shooting kills 19 and dozens more wounded



At least 19 people have been killed and dozens more wounded in a shooting at a college in Russian-annexed Crimea.

 
An 18-year-old student ran through the technical college in Kerch firing at fellow pupils before killing himself, Russian investigators say.


Officials and witnesses have also spoken of at least one blast caused by an unidentified explosive device.


Russia seized Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 in a move condemned by many Western powers.


The annexation marked the start of a simmering conflict involving Russian-backed rebels in eastern Ukraine that goes on to this day.
