A demonstration in support of Ukrainian unity in the eastern city of Donetsk has been violently broken up by pro-Russian militants.

Several people were wounded when a few hundred men dressed in military fatigues, wielding baseball bats and iron bars and letting off firecrackers, waded into the pro-Ukraine rally.

Sarah Rainsford reports from Donetsk.
