At least six civilians were killed on Thursday when a shell or a mortar hit a trolleybus stop in the rebel-controlled city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, a Reuters witness said.
The Reuters cameraman said he saw six bodies on the ground near, and inside, a trolleybus in a southern district of the city. Windows of shops nearby had been blown out by the blast.
The incident took place in a part of the city under the control of separatists who are fighting Ukrainian government forces. The city administration later put the number of dead at 7, though rebel statements suggested a higher death toll.
