Cease-Fire in Eastern Ukraine Violated

MOSCOW (AP) — A cease-fire between pro-Russian separatists and government forces in eastern Ukraine has been violated in the rebel-held city of Donetsk.

The Donetsk mayor’s office reported two attacks, one late on Tuesday and another in the early hours Wednesday. In one of them, a mortar shell hit an apartment block.

The RIA Novosti news agency quoted the rebels as saying that two people died in the attack but the mayor’s office had no information about casualties.

The cease-fire between the rebels and Ukrainian troops has largely held since both parties agreed to it on Sept. 5.

At talks last weekend, both sides agreed to pull back heavy artillery, setting up a buffer zone. Rebels said on Wednesday they were implementing this agreement as well as the Ukrainians.
