Ukraine’s ceasefire under pressure as one more serviceman killed | Reuters

KIEV (Reuters) - A fragile ceasefire between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists came under renewed pressure on Sunday with the Ukrainian military reporting a serviceman had been killed and seven others wounded in rebel attacks. The casualties, which follow the death on Saturday of another serviceman in shelling in the south east, occurred as the Ukrainian military and the rebels accused each other of violating a peace deal signed in Minsk, Belarus, in February. The latest violence has revived concerns that the deal, brokered by the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France, could collapse, even though international monitors say violations were relatively limited #Africa #Argentina #Entertainment #Latin America #Middle East #opinion #Russia #Technology #Ukraine #United States

BERLIN (Reuters) - Treble-chasing Bayern Munich claimed a third straight Bundesliga title on Sunday without kicking a ball after VfL Wolfsburg's 1-0 defeat at Borussia Moenchengladbach meant they had an unassailable 15-point lead with four games left.

Pockets of violence erupt in Baltimore after march to protest black man’s death | Reuters

BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Thousands of people marched through downtown Baltimore on Saturday to protest the unexplained death of a black man in police custody but the demonstrations turned violent when some protesters threw metal objects at officers and broke windows. Saturday's protests began peacefully, with at least 2,000 demonstrators marching to City Hall for a rally, the biggest since 25-year-old Freddie Gray died six days ago, a week after his arrest. But later, as darkness fell, some protesters fanned out across the city and damaged stores and cars #Argentina #Business #Italy #lifestyle #Middle East #opinion #science #Sports #Technology #United Kingdom #United States
