Pro-Kremlin rebels in military fatigues have stormed a regional police building and the town hall in the eastern Ukrainian town of Horlivka, local officials said as the separatists tightened their grip on the country's east.Igor Demin, Horlivka's police chief, told AFP news agency on Wednesday that the rebels had taken control of the police headquarters in the town, which they declared part of the "People's Republic of Donetsk".The seizures extended the grip of pro-Russian armed rebels on the town, who took over another police station on April 14. Oleksandr Turchynov, Ukraine's acting president until an election on May 25, reiterated on Wednesday that police were incapable of reasserting control in the region.Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from Kiev.
