Ten civilians have been killed and 13 wounded in rebel shelling of a military checkpoint in eastern Ukraine, officials say.

The rebels shelled the checkpoint near the town of Volnovakha in the Donetsk region while a passenger bus was passing through, according to the Donetsk regional administration which is loyal to the central government in Kiev.

Fighting between Ukrainian government troops and pro-Russian rebels has killed more than 4,700 people since April. Hostilities have intensified in recent days, jeopardising hopes for a peace deal.
