Pro-Russian separatists killed at least 10 Ukrainian paratroopers in an overnight ambush in the region of east Ukraine where a Malaysian airliner was brought down, government forces have said.
The rebels said they had "captured good trophies" and pushed back government forces around the town of Shakhtarsk, where Kiev said a paratrooper unit moving from one base to another had come under mortar and tank fire.
Shakhtarsk is close to the rolling fields where Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 came down on, and fighting has raged around it for several days as the Ukrainian army tries to quell the separatist rebellion.
At least 25 people have been killed in shelling by Israeli forces in the southern Gaza Strip, Gaza's interior ministry has said.
Baggage handling company Swissport has denied claims zero-hours contracts were to blame for the disruption at Gatwick Airport last weekend.
Staff shortages at the company forced hundreds of passengers to go home without their luggage and left others waiting for up to five hours to reclaim their bags at the airport on July 27.
The firm told ITV News' Chris Choi the "suggestion that issues may have been caused by zero hour contracts is untrue".
Despite warnings that passengers could face yet more problems this weekend, Swissport said all services this morning were meeting targets.
"Baggage services to client airlines to 7am this morning was good and within its targets. There were no appreciable delays," the company said.
