Pro-Russian protesters storm Donetsk prosecutor's office

Several hundred pro-Russian demonstrators in the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine have stormed the prosecutor's office, demanding the release of activists arrested last week.

It happened as voters in Crimea went to the polls to choose they would like Crimea to rejoin Russia.

The referendum has been condemned as "illegal" by Kiev but backed by Moscow.
