Govt-held Ukraine town hit by rebel shells

A town in east Ukraine came under shellfire by pro-Russian rebels on Wednesday, amid fears that they are launching a counter-offensive on government-held parts of the region. In response to outgoing fire early on Wednesday, forces lobbed at least 10 shells at the government-held town of Novoazovsk.

Plumes of black smoke rose above the town, which was hit repeatedly shelled on Monday, injuring four residents in a local hospital. The renewed fighting came a day after the Russian and Ukrainian leaders met in Minsk, Belarus, to discuss the escalating crisis in east Ukraine. Despite a one-on-one session between Vladimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko that lasted over two hours, there was no indication of a swift resolution to the fighting that has dragged on since April and claimed at least 2,000 civilian lives.
