President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke at a ceremony in Bucha Friday, vowing to punish those who committed outrages there that are still raw.

Thirty-five bodies have been found inside a well at a Hindu temple in central India after dozens of people fell into the muddy water when the well's cover collapsed. Video of Thursday's collapse showed chaos afterward, with people rushing toward the exits. An excavator pulled down a wall of the decades-old temple to help people flee.
