Three Ukrainian military killed in rebel attack
KIEV - Three members of the Ukrainian military were killed on Saturday when pro-Russian separatists attacked their post near the eastern flashpoint city of Slaviansk with small arms and mortar fire, a military spokesman said.

 

The reported attack on the post manned by members of the government's "anti-terrorist operation" took place despite a government ceasefire, which was extended on Friday until Monday night.

 

"As a result of the (rebel) fighters shooting at the post near Slaviansk, three members of the Ukrainian forces were killed and a fourth was wounded," the spokesman, Oleksiy Dmitrashkovsky, was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency. (Reuters)
