Ukraine crisis: Violent clashes break out in Donetsk

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.
