Kiev govt renews assaults on rebels in Sloviansk after attacks in Luhansk

Fighting raged in eastern Ukraine for the second straight day on Tuesday as government forces rolled out an offensive against separatist rebels holding the city of Sloviansk, with reports of fatalities on both sides.

Rebels in the town, a fierce separatist stronghold where a military helicopter was shot down last week killing 14 servicemen, said they had brought down a Su-25 attack aircraft and a helicopter, although this was denied by Ukrainian authorities.
