KIEV - Insurgents in eastern Ukraine said on Monday that they had shot down an An-26 military transport plane near the city of Lugansk.

Earlier in the day, a Ukrainian military spokesman said they had lost contact with an An-26 aircraft near Luhansk in the restive eastern regions, where Ukrainian troops were battling with insurgents.

Fierce fighting and heavy casualties have been reported since the government forces resumed military operations against insurgents since the start of the month.
