Bombardments ahead of Ukraine separatist vote

Explosions were audible from central Donetsk most of the night, apparently from artillery targeting the city’s ruined airport where Ukrainian soldiers are holding out against besieging rebels. In mid-morning, explosions could be heard about every five seconds, accompanied by the sound of machine-guns, AFP correspondents in Donetsk said. There was also heavy rebel shelling of Krymske, a village near Lugansk, another major separatist town, the regional governor said.
