Ukraine rebels say government forces pushed back near Donetsk

KIEV/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Pro-Russian separatist forces said on Tuesday they had pushed Ukrainian government troops out of two districts on the outskirts of their main stronghold Donetsk, and their aim was to expand their control to the entire region. A rebel advance launched last week has dashed a five-month truce, reignited a war that has killed more than 5,000 people and brought threats of new sanctions on Moscow, which NATO accuses of backing the separatists with money, arms and troops #aut #cnt #content #cookie #rch #rco #typeof-registered #typeof-social #values #wcntn #wcnts #Yahoo!

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Six airlines from the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and Lebanon suspended flights to Baghdad on Tuesday after bullets hit an airplane operated by budget carrier Dubai Aviation Corp, known as flydubai, as it was landing at Baghdad airport.

He did not rule out that Monday's shooting could be a militant action but said security forces had identified the source. #author #Business #facebook #Italy #Latin America #markets #Mexico #Middle East
