AFP , Sunday 15 Feb 2015

Two civilians were killed by rockets fired by rebels shortly after the start of a ceasefire in east Ukraine Sunday, a pro-Kiev official said, but firing halted along most of the frontline.

An elderly man and woman died after Grad missile fire hit the town of Popasna in the Lugansk region some 20 minutes after a truce came into force at 2200 GMT Saturday, local governor Gennadiy Moskal said.

Ukraine's army said firing had died down across most of the conflict zone and only isolated shooting was reported.
