Ukraine unrest: Fear and panic in Donetsk after deadly clashes

Ukraine's interior ministry says the military is now in full control of the airport in the eastern city of Donetsk after a day of bloody clashes.

More than 30 pro-Russia separatists were reported killed after an attempt to seize the airport early on Monday.

"It's war, it's civil war," one Donetsk resident told the BBC after witnessing the destruction.

Mark Lowen reports from Donetsk.
