The big story: Clues left behind at Polish missile site

When a missile landed in the sleepy village of Przewodow on a foggy afternoon, locals feared that the Russians were attacking Poland. After the authorities blocked off the site of the explosion that killed two men at a grain facility, residents four miles from the border with Ukraine endured a night’s anxious wait – fearing they were at the centre of an unlikely flashpoint for a Third World War between Nato and Vladimir Putin. Now it appears the blast may have been caused by a Ukrainian anti-missile weapon landing in the farming village after going astray during massive Russian bombing, the heaviest since the war began. Western intelligence suggested the rocket was most likely fired by Kyiv’s forces in an attempt to intercept incoming Russian missiles. Reporting from Ukraine, Joe Barnes explains what pictures of fragments from the blast site tell us about where it could have been launched from.

Regardless of who fired it, Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg today insisted that Russia bears “ultimate responsibility” for the missile – echoing an earlier statement made by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. Both men said attention must be paid to why Ukraine is being forced to defend itself. Political editor Ben Riley-Smith has our report from Bali, where western world leaders gathered for the G20 summit today met to discuss the missile strike and condemn Moscow’s latest barrage against Ukraine’s infrastructure, which they said was the ultimate cause.

Trudeau’s dressing down from Xi

In an extraordinary exchange caught on camera at the G20, Xi Jinping dressed down Justin Trudeau for allegedly leaking details of their private meeting. China’s leader and the Canadian prime minister met yesterday for the first time in three years – when Mr Trudeau reportedly raised “serious concerns” over Chinese “interference activities” in Canada, including possible election tampering. Within hours, details of the 10-minute conversation were credited to “a government source”. Watch the moment Mr Xi confronted Mr Trudeau before a frosty handshake. In her analysis, associate editor Camilla Tominey explains how Mr Sunak reached out the hand of friendship to China only to have it slapped.

Unique battlefield of the sniper

Footage released by Ukrainian officials claims to show military history. The first demonstration of new drone weaponry, perhaps, devised by Kyiv’s ever-resourceful tech warriors? No. Instead, this was the work of a much older form of remote warfare – the sniper. According to Ukraine’s defence chiefs, two Russians were killed from 1.7 miles away – making it the second-longest ever-recorded combat kill by a sharpshooter. But are they damaged loners or ruthless assassins? Colin Freeman looks at the myths and reality of warfare’s “cold-blooded” killers.
