One person has died during violent clashes between rival protesters in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk.

The clashes began when hundreds of demonstrators chanting pro-Russian slogans broke through a police cordon and confronted a rally by people opposed to the Russian military intervention in Crimea.

Pro-Russia protesters threw smoke bombs and fire crackers and a fight broke out.
