Clashes In Donetsk Leave Dozens Dead
High-caliber weapons fire echoed sporadically Tuesday through the eastern city of Donetsk and the mayor urged residents to stay home a day after fighting between Ukrainian troops and separatist rebels reportedly killed dozens.
Donetsk mayor Oleksandr Lukyanchenko said 40 people, including two civilians, were killed after troops repelled a rebel attempt Monday to seize control of the airport, Ukraine's second-largest.
Local morgues were overflowing with bodies Tuesday and rebel leaders said the death toll could rise up to 100.
