AFP , Wednesday 23 Apr 2014

Ukraine's military has "liberated" the eastern town of Svyatogorsk from pro-Kremlin separatists, the interior ministry said in a statement late Wednesday.

The town, around 15 kilometres (10 miles) north of the flashpoint city of Slavyansk, was one of around 10 the rebels had been occupying for more than a week.

AFP could not immediately confirm the ministry's information.
