More shelling of Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant has been reported, with Ukraine and Russia again blaming each other for the attack.

Each side said there were 10 hits on the plant's administrative office and fire station on Thursday (Aug 11).

UN Secretary General António Guterres warned the fighting could "lead to disaster" at Europe's largest nuclear plant, seized by Russia in early March.

Ukraine warned that Russia may provoke the world's worst nuclear accident.

On Wednesday (Aug 10), foreign ministers from the G7 group of industrialised nations said Russia must immediately hand back control of the plant to Kyiv.

The facility and its surrounding area in central-eastern Ukraine saw shelling last week, with Russia and Ukraine also accusing each other over that attack.

Ukraine says Russia has turned the site into a military base, launching attacks from there, knowing that Ukrainian forces are unlikely to retaliate.
