Lethal attack inside Ukraine sees 14 soldiers dead

(Volnovakha) Ukrainian troops manning checkpoints in the eastern half of the country (near the border with Russia) were attacked during the night, resulting in the murders of 14 and 27 wounded. In the most lethal attack, troops at a check point let through an armoured bank truck, and once behind them, gunmen surged from within it and attacked the troops from point blank range. Later, masked pro-Russian rebels claimed they had attacked the Ukrainian troops defending their homeland, and showed off a large number of weapons they had captured.
