Rebel attack leaves dead and wounded among Ukraine forces

KIEV - Pro-Russian separatists attacked Ukrainian government forces with mortar fire on Friday in a city in the rebellious east of the country, killing and wounding a number of them, the National Guard said.


It said the rebels, operating from the precincts of a nearby church, fired on a government forces checkpoint in Slaviansk, which has been controlled by separatists since early April. (Reuters)
