Ukraine army helicopter shot down near Sloviansk

Amateur footage posted online appears to show the aftermath of a Ukrainian military helicopter being shot down, killing 14 people.

The videos, which cannot be independently verified, show plumes of black smoke rising near Sloviansk, where Ukraine's outgoing president says pro-Russian rebels downed the aircraft.

The BBC's Mark Lowen said that the incident was "a huge blow to the Ukrainian military".
