Ukraine convoy attack near Luhansk leaves 'no survivors'
No-one survived an attack on a convoy of refugees in the Luhansk area of eastern Ukraine on Monday, a rebel source has told the BBC.

Details of the attack are still unclear but a Ukrainian military spokesman has said 15 bodies have so far been recovered from the scene.

Ukraine has accused pro-Russian rebels of attacking the convoy but they have denied involvement.

Meanwhile, heavy fighting is reported in the centre of Luhansk itself.

The government in Kiev said on Tuesday that street battles were taking place and an interior ministry aide told the Interfax Ukraine agency that the military was recapturing the city "block by block".

The city centre was reported to have been shelled on Monday night.

Tens of thousands of civilians have fled Luhansk, one of two major cities held by pro-Russian rebels, as Ukrainian government forces advance.

Clashes have also prevented the recovery of bodies from the scene of Monday's attack, on a road between Novosvitlivka and Khryashchuvatye.
