Over 130 people have been detained in Odessa, south Ukraine, after dozens were killed in a fire and street fighting involving separatists and groups supporting the Kiev government, police said.
In a statement, local police chief Petro Lutsiuk said those arrested could face charges ranging from taking part in riots to premeditated murder for yesterday's street battles.
Most of those killed either choked on smoke or died after jumping out of the city's trade union building, which was set on fire, officials said.
European Union foreign ministers added 13 people to their visa ban and asset freeze list over Ukraine's crisis.
Well that’s the voting over, and no surprises so far. A ‘Yes’ vote claimed to be 89% in Donetsk, and suddenly Ukraine is no more.
Nearly 90 percent of voters in eastern Ukrainian region voted for self-rule, the head of the separatist election commission said.
