Topic: At least six civilians killed in shelling attack in Donetsk: Reuters witness


At least six civilians were killed on Thursday when a shell or a mortar hit a trolleybus stop in the rebel-controlled city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, a Reuters witness said. The incident took place in a part of the city under the control of separatists who are fighting Ukrainian government forces. The city administration later put the number of dead at 7, though rebel statements suggested a higher death toll. A Ukrainian military spokesman meanwhile said that Kiev government forces had withdrawn from the new terminal at the main airport in Donetsk, a symbolic target where heavy fighting has been taking place for months.
