Fighting intensifies in eastern Ukraine

Fighting has started again in eastern Ukraine between government troops and separatist rebels, Ukrainian military officials said.

Yesterday a missile killed at least 15 refugees who were trying to flee the area "burning them alive". More bodies may still be recovered.

This comes days after a convoy of aid supplies travelled to the country from Moscow but Ukraine is still to let them in over fears it could spark an invasion.

'Dozens' killed in missile attack on refugees

A Ukrainian military spokesman has said that "dozens" were killed in a rocket attack on a refugee bus convoy earlier today.

Pro-Russian rebels have denied responsibility for the attack, which hit buses carrying refugees from the east Ukrainian city of Luhansk.

In a briefing to journalists, spokesman Andriy Lysenko said they had not been able to count the exact number of people killed, but they had placed it in the dozens with women and children among the dead.
