Eastern Ukraine has sustained another day of heavy shelling. At least 5 people were killed in an army assault on a village near Donetsk, while the city itself was also hit. Inside the city, people are struggling with a dire humanitarian situation, as Paula Slier has more.
Authorities in the pro-Russian bastion of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine say 34 civilians were killed in a 24-hour period, with another 29 injured - caught up in fighting between rebels and government forces.
Makiivka in the city's eastern outskirts came under fire - the first time the area had suffered shelling, according to residents.
A bloodied sandal lay in the middle of the street. Shattered glass and debris lay strewn around damaged buildings.
