Ukraine's president has said a truce agreed with pro-Russian rebels in the east must be honoured, as he ordered the army to stop fighting.

Petro Poroshenko also warned the rebels against continuing attacks on the besieged strategic town of Debaltseve.

Fighting appeared to have died down immediately after the ceasefire took effect.

But subsequent reports from eastern Ukraine suggested there were incidents of shelling in some places.
