Deadly fighting rages on in east Ukraine despite plane crash

A man leaves a house destroyed after the bombardments carried out by Ukrainian armed forces near the airport of Donetsk on July 20, 2014Pensioner Oleksandr had just stepped out of his house in eastern Ukraine to say hello to a neighbour when a mortar shell landed at his feet. “They are fighting and we are in the middle of it!” Lyudmila, his grieving widow, told AFP in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk. After Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed on Thursday in the strife-torn region, killing all 298 passengers aboard, both Kiev and the pro-Russian rebels it has been fighting for months raised the possibility of a ceasefire. Ukraine’s armed forces over the weekend pushed on with their operation to stamp out the rebels controlling the south-east part of Lugansk, with combat over the last 24 hours leaving 13 wounded in the industrial hub.
