Three explosions heard north of Donetsk, minutes after Ukraine ceasefire
Three explosions were heard north of the city of Donetsk on Friday, minutes after a ceasefire agreed between Kiev and pro-Russian rebels went into force in Ukraine, a Reuters correspondent reported from the scene.

 

Two unidentified rebel fighters told Reuters they had received an order for a ceasefire.

 

The ceasefire deal agreed at talks in Minsk includes a prisoner exchange, while armed forces on both sides are to remain in their current positions, a source close to talks had said on earlier on Friday.
