Pro-Russians storm government buildings in Ukraine

Pro-Russian activists have broken into regional administration buildings in Ukraine.

Reports from Donetsk suggest about 50 people broke away from about 2,000 demonstrators at a rally in the main square of the city.

Hundreds of police are reported to have been guarding the building but the activists got through the cordon and raised Russian flags from the roof.

Joerg Schulze reports.
