A bomb has killed at least 2 people, including a police officer, and injured at least 10 more people at a rally in Ukraine's second city Kharkiv.

The rally was one of several being held to mark a year since the Kiev uprising that led to the fall of pro-Russia leader Viktor Yanukovych.

Security forces have detained four suspects in the attack.

Kharkiv lies outside the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine, where a ceasefire appears finally to be taking hold.

The government has agreed to start pulling back heavy weapons from yesterday, and the rebels said they would start the process on Tuesday.
