Around 200 protesters recapture Donetsk govt building

A group of pro-Russian demonstrators recaptured the regional administration building in Ukraine's Donetsk just hours after they were removed by police.

Around 200 protesters re-entered the building, despite a huge police presence, following their ejection from a building they had held since Monday.
