Deadly attack on Ukraine troops near Malaysia Airlines crash site

Ukraine say at least ten of its soldiers have been killed by pro-Russian separatists near the eastern town of Shakhtarsk, in the region where a Malaysian airliner was brought down last month.

Military officials say a paratrooper unit came under mortar and tank fire overnight.

Earlier Ukrainian television reported that 20 servicemen had been killed in the attack, saying a Grad missile had been fired.

It comes as Belarus pursues diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis.
