Fourteen people have been killed, including at least 10 Ukrainian soldiers, in fighting overnight close to the crash site of downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, a Ukrainian military spokesman has said.
“In total it is known that 14 people died but the bodies of four of them have not been identified and could be Ukrainian soldiers or terrorists,” Oleksiy Dmytrashkivsky said on Friday.
He added that “so far we are talking about 10 Ukrainian servicemen dead” in the clash, in the town of Shakhtarsk 15 miles from the MH17 site.
Earlier the Ukrainian military had said its troops were ambushed by insurgent fighters.
