Battles 'on the streets of Luhansk' say Ukrainian army

The Ukrainian army say there are battles on the streets of Luhansk, a city in the east of the country near the border with Russia.

The city is a stronghold for the pro-Russian separatists who are fighting the Ukrainian government for control of eastern parts of the country.

However these unverified pictures, apparently shot yesterday, suggest the streets of the city are deserted, with no signs of violence.
