March 4: Russian troops have seized the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the Ukrainian authorities say.

"Operational personnel are monitoring the condition of power units," a local authority said on social media, quoted by Reuters news agency.

Station personnel continue to work and monitor the state of the power units, it said.

A fire broke out at the plant earlier - Europe's largest - after a Russian shelling attack.
