U.N. report: More than 1,300 people killed in Ukraine after cease-fire

A U.N. report released Monday has revealed that 1,357 people have been killed in Ukraine since September's cease-fire took effect.

Since pro-Russian rebels took control of parts of eastern Ukraine in April, 4,707 people have been killed, and 1,357 of the deaths were recorded after the Sept. 5 cease-fire.

"The conflict is in its ninth month, and the situation is becoming increasingly dire for the population still living in the east," U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said in a statement.

Reuters reports that while violence has slowed recently, the crisis has left many civilians without social support.
