Landmine kills three soldiers in east Ukraine

An army spokesman says three Ukrainian soldiers have been killed by a landmine explosion in the separatist east. They are the first reported army fatalities in almost a week.

Ukrainian army spokesman Andriy Lysenko said on Saturday that three soldiers had been killed and two wounded in the explosion.

He said the landmine had gone off near Avdiyivka, referring to a village not far from Donetsk, a stronghold of pro-Russian separatist rebels waging an insurgency against the government in Kyiv.

There were no further details on the incident, which occurred in the midst of a ceasefire aimed at ending the year-long war in eastern Ukraine.
