Shelling In Donetsk Rocks Cease-Fire In Ukraine

The cease-fire in eastern Ukraine is being tested Sunday, with intense fighting reported near the airport in Donetsk Saturday and Sunday. An NPR team in that city was forced to flee the shelling.

Reporting from Donetsk, NPR's Eleanor Beardsley says she was with members of the international monitoring group the OSCE — Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe – when they nearly came under fire in Donetsk Sunday.

"We were in town, where a large store had been shelled. It was on fire. The whole street was smoky," Eleanor tells our Newscast unit.
