Ukraine's government has confirmed a deadly attack on troops in the eastern region of Donetsk, with reports saying at least 11 soldiers died.

Heavily armed "terrorists" attacked a checkpoint in the Vol-no-vakha area, killing or wounding a number of soldiers.

Associated Press journalists counted 11 bodies at the scene while a Russian website said 15 soldiers had died.

Separatists have been skirmishing with security forces in Donetsk for weeks.
